Thanks for your feedback @zolkis.

The issue is a bit more complex, as if you're on a platform where a 
given sensor is implemented as a discrete sensor, e.g. Light Sensor on
 android, geolocation sensors pretty much everywhere, you're 
effectively loosing data in the process depending at the resolution at
 which the discrete sensor is operating.


Therefore, if a given sensor is implemented as a discrete sensor on a 
given platform, it is going to be impossible to turn it into a 
reliable continuous sensor on that platform.
