But i think sampler info sample the information of an object's position, orientation etc. Correct me if i am wrong..

Plug the facing ratio of the sampler info into the vcoord of a ramp texture then plug that texture into a surface shader. Finally attach the shader to an object. Then it will all make sense =)
