There is a way to access the remote accelerometer/gyroscope?

Hi There,
This is my first topic!

I tried to search all over the web and Roku API and can't find any clues on how to access the accelerometer and gyroscope parameters generated by the remote controller on the roku3. Anyone knows how?

The roUniversalControlEvent object does not generate events for the motion sensors.

Thanks
Guilherme.

Access to these sensors is only available through the NDK. To obtain the NDK, you have to contact partners@roku.com to request private access. See the last FAQ question ("How do I develop games on Roku?") here:

nah, then a channel might come out that would use the accelerometer remote for something besides a hack to try and act like a phone touchscreen.
