Oberthur Technologies introduced a new SIM card that can sense motion. SIMsense will allow phones that aren't equipped with accelerometers to use motion and gestures to interact with the phone. Some of the things it can do include the ability to shake or tap the handset to send predetermined text messages when already on a call, shake or tap the phone to open the main menu, or send out an emergency alert if the phone/user falls. SIMSense works by including accelerometers and temperature captors that enable motion detection on the SIM card. SIMsense technology is meant for cellular network operators to enable and choose which services it will provide to the handsets in which SIMsense SIM cards are installed.
