The software I'm working on at the moment is for this. I'm writing a
program called Dimple which lets you set up a rigid body simulation,
but communicate with it using Open Sound Control, so that you can use
it with programs like PureData and Chuck. So it lets you create
virtual controllers for sound synthesis that you can touch.
It's still a work in progress, but feel free to check it out. The
current dev version (in source control) is compatible with the Falcon.
(I've got one..)
You'll have to wait a little while longer for binaries that support
the Falcon out of the box though.
Also, their drivers are Windows-only. There are Linux drivers under
development here: http://libnifalcon.sf.net
