Virtual SunSPOT controlled by a real SunSPOT

Pardon the zapruder-like quality to this film, but this shows the hack I mentioned in my last post. I'm in SecondLife, controlling a virtual SunSPOT from a real one. In this case, tapping into the 3D accellerometer to pick up the xyz rotation, sending it through my framework to rotate the virtual one. It's a bit laggy, and not 100 percent there, but enough to get the idea.

If I ever find the time, the next cool example would be to implement the ectoplasmic bouncing ball demo using one real and one virtual SPOT. Anyhow, it works. The point really is to learn about the SPOT, and why not do something interesting while testing them...?
