Beagle Bone Sensor Compatibility

Can I use any sensors from my Arduino projects with Beagle Bone? If not, how do I determine if a sensor or product is compatible? Thanks.

The BeagleBone is a 3.3v board, vs. 5v for most Arduinos. Any sensors that can operate at 3.3v can be used directly. 5v only sensors will need some sort of level converter such as this one: http://www.adafruit.com/products/395
