Britain-based BT has developed a motion sensitive computer, called the BT Balance, that features a built-in accelerometer. No word yet on if this concept will go into production. Hit the jump for a video — similar technology demoed on a MacBook.

The BT Balance chip can tell which way it’s being tipped or how hard it’s being knocked, nudged, or shaken, which is plenty of versatility if you’re just surfing the net. Do people still say “surfing the net”? Although it’s designed for tablet PCs, it could certainly be useful in smaller electronics like PDAs, or even larger ones like desktops
