Here are the categories of devices supported by Mathematica
(ControllerState/Maniuplate/Graphics3D) v6-v7:

Mac OS X:
* "Mac OS X Human Interface Device" (including "3Dconnexion 6 DOF
Device")
* "Mac OS X Motion Sensor Device"
* "SensAble Haptic Device" (PowerPC only)
* "MIDI Device" (v7+)

Windows:
* "Windows DirectInput Device"
* "Windows XInput Device"
* "3Dconnexion 6 DOF Device"
* "SensAble Haptic Device"

Linux:
* "Linux Joystick Device" (/dev/js*)
* "SensAble Haptic Device"
