Does the following component exist, as I haven't been able to find one: A compact, SMD motion activated switch. I want my PCB circuit to only draw power while in motion. Preferably something which is electromechanical, if not something with low current draw (below 1ma constant).

Anybody know of such a thing?

Digi-key has tilt sensors that are basically a small ball bearing surrounded by contacts. If something accelerates up to a constant, smooth velocity, I don't know of anything that will make a continuous output after the acceleration goes to zero.
