Is it possible to change the screen orientation of a ThinkPad T500 automatically?

14 Feb

I know it is possible to use the accelerometers of my ThinkPad T500 but I think I need to do more research if it is practically use those accelerometers like a gyroscope, e.g. can I detect the rotation by using the displacement in x, y and z coordinates. Here are some relevant web pages that I’ll examine when I find some time:
