A variety of sensors come standard on most Windows 8 based phones, tablets, and ultra books. Applications can use data provided by an accelerometer, compass, or gyroscope as an input mechanism or to augment reality with computer generated information. These sensors are accessed via the Sensors API found in the Windows Runtime, Microsoft's new application platform. In this talk, we will look at the Windows Runtime Sensor APIs you can use to build desktop, Windows Store, and Windows Phone applications.
