This feature is non-standard and is not on a standards track. Do not use it on production sites facing the Web: it will not work for every user. There may also be large incompatibilities between implementations and the behavior may change in the future.
DeviceOrientationEvent constructor creates a new
var deviceOrientationEvent = new DeviceOrientationEvent(type[, options])
"deviceorientationabsolute". If the later, then
options.absoluteshould be true.
- options Optional

gamma: A number representing the motion of the device around the y axis, express in degrees with values ranging from -90 to 90. This represents a left to right motion of the device.
