Does anyone know what the collective term for shaking a device to achieve something or using the accelerometer of a device to do something is? Is it haptic technology?
ki·net·ic adjective /kəˈnetik/
Of, relating to, or resulting from motion
(of a work of art) Depending on movement for its effect
For semantics questions like this english.stackexchange.com is very valuable.
The iPhone 4 for example has 2 accelerometers and 1 gyroscope, all of which rely on motion ( kinetic action ) and nothing to do with touch ( haptic ).
