IBM Active Protection System


Playing around on my thinkpad, I discovered that the HDAPS system can be used to do more than just protect your hard drive in case of a fall.

The following application displays a 3D model of a cube representing the monitored laptop, a server running on that laptop is sending real-time updates using information it gets from the IBM Hard Drive Active Protection System (HDAPS). This allows a remote client to monitor the movement of the laptop. The application itself is not very impressive, but I included a screenshot anyway.
