The USB port on the freerunner can be used to connect usb devices. (See 
the wiki for how this is done.)

So, if you can get a device with a USB interface, then it is easy.
If you can't get that, get a device with a serial interface, and get a 
serial-to-usb converter.

And of course connecting via bluetooth or wifi is easy enough, but I 
have not heard of any gyroscopes connectiong via such interfaces. :-/
