*** FOR DEMONSTRATIVE PURPOSES ONLY. NO OBJECTIVES! ***

This app uses the accelerometer to simulate a ball trapped within the device's screen. It uses the accelerometer to detect gravity and fools the user into thinking it is part of the real world. Designed only to stimulate a short burst of playfulness or relieve stress, it uses actual physics simulation as well as a compass heading to simulate a static light source. If you own a tablet, you may need to switch the x and y axes of the accelerometer input by accessing the application's menu. Nonetheless, it does what it is supposed to, just a bouncing ball seemingly trapped inside the screen of your Android device. Enjoy!

*** May turn into a game in the future! ****

*** Keep in mind, this was made in a day as a result of boredom! ***

    You should make a classic labyrinth game using these physics.

    5 stars for saying up front that it does nothing.
