Generating Server-Sent Events on Arduino

This is a tiny demonstration I created for MESO Digital Services. We’re using an Arduino Ethernet to intercept inputs and forward them to a browser. One-Way communication makes Server-Sent Events via Eventsource an interesting and rarely seen choice.

Here’s a video of the proof of concept with two switches on digital inputs. Analog input (or complex input like MIDI or DMX) works, too. The latency is negligible – the video was shot at 25 frames per second, and i can’t even tell if there’s one frame of delay. It’s certainly good enough for most use cases, including games.

The Code and some more links are up on GitHub!
