OSVR (Open Source Virtual Reality) aims to address that. It is a standard for virtual reality devices and hardware. In fact, Razer has a Hacker Dev Kit with an accelerometer, gyroscope, and compass. You also get USB 3.0 ports, a 5.5″ FHD display (1080p), a near-eye-display system with field of view of 100 degrees, and a mobile phone holder.
