Using Dual-Axis Accelerometers to Protect Hard Disk Drives
So can anyone translate into english?
Use accelerometers to detect when the device is in free fall and shut down the hard drive before it comes to a sudden stop and gets damaged. This paper is suggesting that you only have to measure acceleration in 2 axes to detect that the device is falling, not 3, as you might expect.
I think the Sony HD5 already has this; can anyone confirm?
I think the HD3 uses a similar device called a "Flux capacitor"
Didn't want to start a new thread, so check out Sony's new 5gb CompactFlash Vault, simple called CompactVault
Miniture/or small-ish Microdrive DAPs in future, or stack 2 together for a pretty small 10gb DAP?
