Recently I’ve become interested in the sensors that live inside Android devices, and how to use them. It turns out that interacting with them is a little on the non-obvious side, as is interpreting the read-outs. So I drew some graphs. [Update: The graphs were wrong. So I deleted them. But I’m about to post a better version.]

Thanks for the inspiration. I've now got real-time charts rendered on html5 canvas via javascript apis modeled on these you've posted (may loose some points here for only testing with iOS):

And that in turn inspired an interactive visualization I like even better:
