    About 20 years ago an article appeared in Radio Electronics magazine
    describing such a detector. It was basically a circuit that amplified the
    1/f noise on a big capacitor. Because this noise followed a diurnal cycle,
    it was claimed to be measuring gravity. My recollection is that this was
    in their April issue, where they traditionally included a joke article
    (e.g. macrowave oven for cooling things rapidly).
    I would caution against investing money in this device.  ;-)
