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.

Impact JS Demo

I dug up a project of mine, dusted if off and put it on my webserver once more. About a year ago, I played around with Impact a little bit.

In september, I decided to create a nice interactive background for my wedding website, and as luck would have it, geek culture was a big part of that wedding. The natural choice was a jump-and-run classic with slightly customized characters.

impact jump and run demo from 2013

Starting out with impact (and with a lot of other things on my mind, back then), I was worried that I wouldn’t finish it. It turned out to be no problem at all. The main body of code was written in less than six hours, with a few tweaks over the following few days. That time includes reading the docs and getting to know impact itself. I’m really impressed with how simple getting into it was. If you have some experience with JavaScript, you shouldn’t have too much trouble building your own games in no time flat.

Tech-Demo: Syncing Clocks

Demo of my server synced real time clock with a lot of colors.I am currently working on a small project for MESO Web Scapes that involves synchronizing independent browser windows (may also extend to independent devices and platforms). I prepared a tiny demo that contains the gist of that synchronisation.
