The Newton ‘Virus’

Before you jump off to be excited about this piece of beauty (i.e if you have not already read or heard about it) let me tell you that this is a piece of Art that was a winning entry for an art Competition.The Newton Virus is a fun piece of software that makes your Mac behave as it would do in gravity ie the icons fall to the bottom of screen and move around if you move around your MAC.This feature uses the Motion Sensor technology present in MACS.

On a more serious note , this is not a virus.It is a piece of prank that you can play on your friends MAC and leave him /her truly speechless for the 1 min the virus runs before safely deleting itself.Also it has not been designed to cause any kind of Data Loss so that too is unlikely.

Here is a short video showing what I mean.
