No, actually. We tried to develop this stuff using mostly Smalltalk code.
For Arduino and SqueakNxt we are only using the SerialPort class. The other
projects use FFI to access the libraries that do the hard work. If you're
interested I can give you the links to their websites.

Yes, of course! We would be very glad to accept contributions. In fact, we
want to increase the list of supported hardware with everything considered
worthwhile, and the sensors built into laptops seem to be a great addition.
