Using sensors RRS feed

  • Question

  • So there are sensors in my new Surface Pro 4. They say it has an accelerometer, compass, ambient light sensor, location etc. I'd like to use them from a .NET desktop application to see what I could do with them. But I couldn't find any resources about that topic. I did find Windows RT (which is dead already) and Windows 7 COM (which is not easily accessible through .NET).

    Is there any hope for a WPF application developer to use these sensors? I'm running Windows 10 here, obviously, but would like to maintain Windows 7 compatibility as long as possible.
