At Kaazing, we have been experimenting with using a smartphone as a remote
control for quite some time now. Those familiar with our demos may have seen
our Zing-Pong demo (which is a “Pong”-style game using smartphones to
control the paddles over WebSocket) or our Racer demo (which is a 3D Formula
One car rendered in WebGL as a Chrome Experiment, and remotely controlled
with a smartphone). These demos, along with the other demos we’ve created
with Kaazing’s platform, use no plug-ins. You simply point a browser on
your computer to the address of the object you want to control (for example,
the gorgeous Formula One car rendered in WebGL) and a browser from your
smartphone to the address of the remote control (an ID we generate for you).
Once connected, you just…go!

Kaazing’s Second Screen applications can not only push content to the
mobile devices of your viewers with virtually no delay, they also
facilitate real-time bidirectional interactivity with them, bring... (more)

After presenting to a partner of Kaazing last week I got asked what impact
the emerging WebSocket standard would have on the Web, assuming we continue
down the path that has already been laid out.
The impact could be the same, or even more profound, as when we were first
introduced to HTTP as a means to share static documents. The difference is
that this time the targeted market is already defined – it is called the
Web. I have over the past several years, half jokingly and half seriously,
compared the current static Web with a push to talk radio (aka Walkie Talkie)
and the new ... (more)
