    Can your mobile check that shelf, measure those rafter angles, set your washing machine level, etc etc?

    No? :rolleyes:

    Well you need a new HTC Touch Diamond and this software :p

    The phone has a built-in inclinometer/accelerometer.

    There is also a rather addictive game like one of those wooden maze/ball-bearing games - you tilt the phone to move the [virtual] bearing. People tend to stare and avoid you when its being played.

    It actually works.

    There are a couple of other similar programs available, but the one above is the most polished one.
