" A micro is a Mealy state/machine with C/C++ design input to design state transitions ("program"). It is only viable that the "next-state" transition have more input available to it, than provided by the tried and tested GPIO+standard peripheral interfaces. The richness of realizable state transitions , directly correlated with the diversity of creative applications of the micro, is greatly enhanced if one can provide more environmental information for the Mealy machine via better mix/match of integrated sensors."
