    Microsoft prepares Windows 10 for panoply of sensors


    Windows 10 devices in the future could be measuring temperature, environmental pressure and carbon dioxide levels, as Microsoft provides an interface to support a wide range of sensors.

    Microsoft is building a unified sensor interface and universal driver for Windows 10 that will support a slew of environmental, biometric, proximity, health and motion sensors, the company said last week at the WinHEC trade show in Shenzhen. Microsoft is also providing the building blocks for Windows 10 to support sensors that haven’t yet been released.

    With support for more sensors, Microsoft hopes to bring “new functionality” to PCs, smartphones, tablets, gadgets and electronics running Windows 10, according to a slide from a presentation.

    I had to look it up. "Panoply" means "lots". Why do people have to dig out a thesaurus and then get it wrong is beyond me.

    "Microsoft prepares Windows 10 for lots of sensors" would be correct.
    "Microsoft prepares Windows 10 for a lot of sensors" would also be correct.
    "Microsoft prepares Windows 10 for a panoply of sensors" would be correct.
    "Microsoft prepares Windows 10 for panoply of sensors" is garbage (unless these sensors are planning to somehow to get up and invade Windows 10 and Microsoft is somehow preparing for it).


    I'll take my pedant hat off now. Story is fairly interesting, thanks.
