I have done some Wiimote --> Processing through Java Bluetooth APIs.
It is not very easy to get things working though. Follow this thread:
It might be possible to generate OSC messages from the Wiimote and
have ChucK respond to those, e.g.
Of course, it would be best to have support directly in ChucK.
