This is going to be really interesting since I imagine that it varies 
a lot per-platform. It might be the case that platforms like Android 
don't actually give you the lowest-level access possible and that is 
only possible on desktop systems. Or maybe they do, but you have to 
drop down to manual serial port communication instead of using the 
built-in Android APIs for the relevant sensors.

Very curious to see what investigation turns up here.
