# tp-theft-lcars v0.1 (http://thinkwiki.org/wiki/Script_for_theft_alarm_using_HDAPS)
# This script uses the HDAPS accelerometer found on recent ThinkPad models
# to emit an audio alarm when the laptop is tilted. In sufficiently
# populated environments, it can be used as a laptop theft deterrent.
#
# This file is placed in the public domain and may be freely distributed.
#
# Here comes a modified version which requires an internet connection and gnash.
# It shows a LCARS red alert flash animation from Star Trek Voyager instead of a beep.
