Thank you, for the feedback.

I love "Processing" so much, but Python is the top! ;)

Bluetooth is detected as a common "serial port".
Be sure you have linked your computer and your bluetooth device correctly the first time. (preferences>bluetooth>add new device> detect...) it's really easy!

Oh, sounds really good! Luck!

really nice to see Bluetooth controller done in Processing. Was just about to create my own with Python and PyGame but yours is already great enough to use! Many thanks for the code and documentation!
