I've been using joysticks to control Chuck through Open Sound Control 
messages for a few months now, and I've been happy with the results. I 
wrote a short joystick->OSC program using CNMAT 's libOSC ( 
http://www.cnmat.berkeley.edu/OpenSoundControl/ ) and the joystick 
wrapper library ( http://wolfpack.twu.net/libjsw/ ). I'm a novice C 
programmer, and, thanks to the examples included with libOSC and 
libjsw, I was able to hack together a working program much more quickly 
than I had expected.  Though the libjsw homepage mentions support on 
all platforms, I never was able to use it with Mac OS X. Sucks! If you 
wanna see my geeky joystick video, its at:
