iAlertU Beta

Posted on April 9, 2006 Under Gadgetry

iAlertU is definitely the first ever remote controlled and motion sensitive alarm system for a laptop computer that I’ve ever seen, and an excellent execution to boot. A video floated around the blogosphere this past week of it in action, but until now there was nowhere to download it. It takes advantage of all the features on the MacBook Pro– allowing you to ‘arm and lock’ your computer like it was an exotic sports car with the Front Row controller as the key-fob. The current beta only allows 5 minutes of usage but it gives you a nice idea of what’s to come. Future versions will include camera integration, user selectable sensitivity and more. Have a MacBook Pro? Check it out, it’s a lot of fun.
