The Web is a great big playground

The Web is a great big playground

The Web is a great big playground presented by Seb Lee-Delisle (@seb_ly) at The Web Is 2014. Seb discussed how much fun lasers are and made us all want to buy some! Here's what I learned from his talk.

Seb's talk was focused around showing a lot of the cool stuff he has done, mainly with lasers! But more importantly it showed us how we can start playing around with hardware and creating cool things.

  • Anyone can learn to do things.
  • JavaScript is becoming faster and has far more advanced graphical features.
  • There are countless inputs and outputs you can connect with the web.
  • There is endless room for playing and exploring.

Learning new stuff is painful, but we love having learned new stuff!

Some of Seb's projects

  • PixelPhones - Web socket browser connection to sync all phones with an audience.
  • Lunar trails - A recreation of Looner Lander which stores peoples journeys to create art.
  • PixelPyros - Interactive digital fireworks.

Just recording what people do and monitoring trends can create art!

Finish projects

The last 10% takes 90% of the time. It's all about attitude, everyone can do it.
