Ted Hayes discusses WiFi, XBee and their associated network topologies, and demoes controlling a networked pong game with a physical joystick using Node.js.
Ted Hayes is a poet-inventor: conceiving objects and experiences that explore the sublime and the enigmatic through recombination and deconstruction. Ted runs a research & development consultancy called Limina.Studio where he makes professional stuff like an internet-enabled bubble gun. See more of his work at http://log.liminastudio.com.
Strange Loop is a multi-disciplinary conference that aims to bring together the developers and thinkers building tomorrow's technology in fields such as emerging languages, alternative databases, concurrency, distributed systems, mobile development, and the web. Strange Loop was created in 2009 by software developer Alex Miller and is now run by a team of St. Louis-based friends and developers under Strange Loop LLC, a for-profit but not particularly profitable venture.
