Google "Native Client enables Chrome to run high-performance apps compiled from your C and C++ code. One of the main goals of Native Client is to be architecture-independent, so that all machines can run NaCl content. Today we're taking another step toward that goal: our Native Client SDK now supports ARM devices, from version 25 and onwards."

Sun played a bit with writing device drivers in Java for Solaris:

The VM used is part of the SPOT project, which is a VM running on bare bones hardware with just a very thin layer of C code and everything else done in Java itself.

The SPOT project was an Arduino like project from Sun, now Oracle, targeted mainly to schools and enthusiasts
