Most tablets and laptops these days have an array of sensors onboard the device that developers can use and take advantage of. One of the sensors which is on most tables and laptops is the Accelerometer Sensor. The Accelerometer sensor can be used to get a acceleration force of the device on the x y and z axis, or basically measure how fast it is moving in any given direction. With the Accelerometer you could build interesting augmented reality applications which react to the forces of the device. In this post we are going to take a look at how to use the Accelerometer Sensor from within your C#/XAML Windows 8 application.
