Sweet OS X input output programs

I just got done setting up my joystick similar to a mouse in OS X.
That’s not all though. The app I used was controllermate
http://www.orderedbytes.com/controllermate/ , it allows for logical
combinations of various physical device inputs. For example, I can
press up on the joystick and have it move the mouse cursor up.

One can also combine devices into virtual devices. I could make a
virtual mouse that uses the x and y access input from my real mouse, but
then uses some keys on the keyboard as the actual mouse buttons. On the
joystick I set up, I used the analog control to be like a mouse. I then
set up a couple of the top buttons to scroll up and down like a mouse
wheel.

I’m gonna set up a Wiimote as an input device next.

Very very cool stuff. Check it out if you’ve got a mac handy.
