This isn't quite a model, I guess, but it's fascinating none-the-less. Apparently Mac Book computers come with a "gravity sensor" that can determine which direction the computer is tilting in. That and some nifty bluetooth-enabled software turns the computer into a remote control for a LEGO MINDSTORMS NXT 'bot.
This is July 2nd's model of the day
