HP Labs just announced the development of a new accelerometer sensor that is 1,000 more sensitive then the current mass-produced technology.
HP Labs is also using the sensors as part of their CeNSE project, which is intended to track changes in and on the Earth, and how those changes impact the environment.
Shell Oil on the other hand, will be using the sensors to detect underground oil reserves. HP is also expecting to use the sensors on a smaller scale, including projects with the hope that â€œawareness could revolutionize human interaction with the Earth as profoundly as the Internet has revolutionized personal and business interactions todayâ€.
