I have forked your rep and added the accelerometers, see [1]. As 
Matthieu suggested, we might want to use this call to update the tilt 
position and store it in freenect_device. But the problem is that it 
will be updated only when the get_accelerometer is called. Do we want to 
add a thread doing this in background and updating cached values inside 

Kind regards,
