If you have a thinkpad, please try with this Warning: This program works only for thinkpad which has harddisk protection program. This program will go fullscreen mode.

How to play:

  2. Move your thinkpad slowly and play with the ball!
  3. If you dropped the ball, press any key to reset.
  4. If you get bored, simply press Esc or Q to quit.

Note: If you think the ball goes too fast or slow, please open RunPlayBall.bat, and change 0.007 to other value.
