Things you could make an autopilot out of...

We've already done Lego, an iPaq cellphone and some random chips we had lying around. What other commonly found objects could you make an autopilot, or some component of one, out of?
  • Wiimotes (shown) have a three-axis accelerometer and an infrared sensor.
  • An iPhone has an accelerometer and a light sensor
  • My laptop has tilt sensors (to take the hard drive read/write head off the platter when the laptop moves)
Etc...

I only wish GPS chips were more ubiquitous...

What's lying around your house that you could turn into part of an autopilot?
