Sad news, my friend.

It isn't there yet, but it is coming. I use the P5 virtual glove with  
ChucK and everything is just peachy, but you have to grab the input  
from another program. The open source way to do it is to use PD and  
grab the HID object (I forget who wrote it, it isn't part of the  
vanilla install). You can then send OSC from PD to ChucK. Not pretty  
but it works.

I have discussed with Ge about putting this functionality. We are  
looking for good cross platform HID libraries. GLUT is no good  
because you need window focus. Any suggestions? This feature was  
promised with the famous screenshot... (sorry to bring that up again)

Take care.
