I read a bit about this and found, that there is a Bluethooth Human
Interface Device (HID) protocol that is very similar, maybe even
combatible to the USB HID protocol. At least on Linux there already
are HID event externals written by Hans-Christoph Steiner (in
externals/hcs). They may work or can be made to work with Bluetooth
HID as well. But AFAIK there are no equivalent HID externals for OS-X,

If you can live with a cord: I sometime use the Shuttle X-Press
Jog/Shuttle wheel with the linuxevent externals.
