Day 65: Visual Accelerometer

Another fun toy. Of course, this is from PA$CO. Worth the money if you
can get one. Useful for a variety of demos. I also use it to show the
velocity-squared dependance of centripetal acceleration by placing it
on a record player going 16 RPM vs. 33 RPM.

Low tech version — Bubble tube accelerometer
