The Space Navigator is indeed a full-fledged USB HID, but ChucK only
naturally talks to HIDs that identify themselves as a joystick, mouse, or
keyboard, which the Space Navigator does not. A generalized HID API would
be cool for sure, and this isn't the first time the idea has come up. We do
feel that the combination of (joystick | mouse | keyboard) has enough
device coverage/cross-platform support/ease of use to be a good baseline.
We actively develop semi-experimental support for new HIDs, so perhaps
ChucK may be able to natively interface with the Space Navigator and other
3D mice in the future.
