           Summary: add support for accelerometer / orientation events
           Product: WebKit
           Version: 528+ (Nightly build)
          Platform: All
        OS/Version: All
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: Enhancement
          Priority: P2
         Component: WebCore JavaScript
        AssignedTo: webkit-unassigned at lists.webkit.org
        ReportedBy: pmuellr at yahoo.com

Firefox has added some accelerometer / orientation JavaScript events in their
nightlies.  It would be nice to have this for WebKit as well.


- Doug Turner's blog posts (Moz developer):

- demo movie

- Mozilla's IDL for the event: 

- for reference, iPhone OS doc on accelerometer APIs:

- Android doc on Sensor events, that can track acceleration and orientation as
separate things

Unfortunately, there's no "API" apparently for desktop macs, though accessing
accelerometer data is described in "Mac OS X Internals: A Systems Approach" by
Amit Singh (section 10.7.5).  Accelerometers are available for some PC laptops
as well, though the usage on a laptop seems a bit of a stretch.
