[R] data acquisition with R?

I spent quite some time now searching for any hint that R can also be 
used to address the interfaces of a computer (i.e. RS232 or USB) to 
acquire data from measurement devices (like with the - I think it is the 
- devices or serial toolbox of Matlab).

Is there any package available or a project going on that you know of? I 
would so much like to have never to work with Matlab again. The only 
thing I am really missing in R so far is the possibility to connect to 
my measurement devices (for instance a precision balance) and record 
data directly with R.

Please let me know whether I am just missing something or if you have 
some information about something like that.

Thank you very much!
