It's an external library. No Applescript involved, unless you want to
use it that way. The library supports a fair number of low-level
commands and functions, e.g.,

SERVICEUSBSetOutputValue value
get SERVICEUSBGetInputValue()

Not likely. The USB interface in the device is an AN2131SC 8051-based
microcontroller, and unless it has some reason to mimic the interface
of another existing device the commands will be very specific to this

Of course, it still needs a Windows driver, and maybe the good folks
at altuit could be persuaded to drag that project out of mothballs.
The hardware looks great - now I want one, too.
