can we add other sensory inputs like accelerometer, pedometer, fingerprint scanner, image recognition etc?

Usually on these things, we’re driven by customer request and scenarios. Could you describe your usage scenario please?

Built-in things like accelerometers are relatively easy, though the scenarios usually involve continuous or recurring data capture, which the rest of the app framework doesn’t yet support well. Something like a pedometer is an external attachment. Image recognition is a whole other story (it’s done in the cloud not on the device), so it is more a matter of integrating with the backend data.
