Here is funny way to turn your computer into a baby rocker, using your disc tray! What the following command does is continually opens and closes the CD/DVD tray, so you can either move the rocker in close so it ends up getting pushed a little each time the tray opens, or tie some string from the rocker handle to the tray.

while :; do eject ; eject -t ; done

You can check out a YouTube vid of it being done via the latter method (though the guy uses his own script). Don’t forget that if you would like to download this video clip, copy the url and paste it into QtTube for downloading to your Videos folder.
