Haha I like the PC in a bottle idea, I've got a couple of Jagermeister bottles kicking around which would be the perfect shape for something like that :D

I had not thought of using Yagermeister bottles for it but that is a perfect idea or maybe a large bundaberg rum bottle

An STM32F4-discovery board makes a cheaper usb accelerometer, less than $20 even if you can't convince ST to give you one as a free sample. http://www.st.com/internet/eva.....252419.jsp
