Pulling apart a video headset and accessing the pins on the video receiver. The HMD is augmented with an micro controller and an accelerometer to sense head motion. We used the previous video receiver hack to connect a Teensy to the receiver.  We had some issues with power connections because the screen needs a much higher voltage than the rest of the system, so we ended up using the headset power supply and voltage converting ICs.
