Hello, I went to download the GyroSpace 3d wallpaper, and the 3d effect created by the gyroscope didn't work. So I investigated by downloading a gyroscope detecting app, and no matter which app I tried, there was no response from the gyroscope. The only other forum I could find about it was an XDA forum that hadn't had a new post since April. I know the touchpad has a gyroscope, but it doesn't seem to be working. Can anyone tell me whats going on with this? And remember, its your accelerometer that has been responsible for turning in racing racing games, and doesn't prove your gyroscope works. Thanks for helping.

And Happy New Year BTW!!!!!

Have you tried any other apps or games that use the gyroscope? I found the thread on XDA and the guy tried the apps to test the gyroscope and said they did not work. Maybe it's the wallpaper that is the problem.

So it's the accelorameter that takes care of the multi-axis movements in these games and apps?

If they work, then it would seem so.

Does the MPU-3050 just not have a driver yet? I've noticed this for a while on some of the augmented reality and shooting gallery type apps.

Right, no userspace driver/HAL for it.

Well, that's just a "dummy" driver for it without any real code, so not much.

So since the touchpad is this far into development, is it safe to say that gyroscope for this device won't happen? Or is it a matter of getting a driver or lines of code from HP?

Thanks for responding btw
