The Internet of JavaScripty Things: Control Hardware with Web Bluetooth

code is fun

11:05 - 11:55 - Serenity

After a late-night eBay bender, you've acquired a cornucopia of Bluetooth-enabled gizmos: heart rate monitors, BBQ thermometers, light bulbs. As you stare at them your mind races: now what? In this talk we'll check out the Web Bluetooth API, a new way to control physical devices from your browser. We'll see how to build webapps that react to Bluetooth inputs, how to reverse engineer strange ArrayBuffer streams, and how to power your conference slide deck with a bicycle. Eesh, I hope that last demo doesn't fail.
