    According to this site:
    and its datasheet:

    This sensors applications are:
    ■ Altimeter and barometer for portable devices
    ■ Smartphones
    ■ Indoor navigation
    ■ GPS applications
    ■ Weather station equipment
    ■ Sports watches

    "the same devices would be able to identify the precise location in
    all three dimensions, allowing, for example, a mobile phone to send a
    call to an emergency fire, medical or police service that identified
    not only the location of the building but also the particular floor."
    Identifying 3d location is similar to what many joystick are doing.

    Specially the indoor navigation information means an information about
    the user. And the information is very tied to the user.
    I don't know whether this can be used to map with virtual reality in a
    game, or where you use sensors data to give user informations when
    visiting a museum.

    Dmitry, is it possible to start putting similar drivers in a new
    drivers/input/sensors directory but which belongs to the input
    subsystem ? What do you think ?
