Hi Robert,

ruby-serialport is not going to work anytime soon, but I think there  
are alternatives in the Cocoa world that you could use.

I did some googling and found http://sourceforge.net/projects/ 
amserial/. You might be able to use this framework inside your app,  
assuming it works with garbage collection.
