pyMCU access from within Sage

pyMCU is a real-time python controlled microcontroller that has proven very useful for my experiments. I would like to control and process data from the device in sage, if possible. If compatible with sage, these would be a great couple! pyMCU uses simple commands from the python command line to set pins hi/low, read analog pin values, or control motors, lights, and other devices with external circuitry; data can be sent to numpy, matplotlib, or other python extensions, including web or file I/O.
Any advice for accessing USB devices using FTDI virtual com port drivers through the sageVM?
