SocketIO is a web socket library designed to transmit and transfer data over web applications. On recent projects I have been reaching out connecting a range of different technologies using them in new and interesting was as seen in university projects. as partly of connecting devices together SocketIO has provided a way of instantly transmitting signals between different applications such as IOS, openFramworks and web application. NodeJs has been key in running a web application which can handle different requests and emit data back. IOS has been used is the initial test phase on activating Socket connections between application. I believe SocketIO may provide a significant link available to me in connection a range of device together within installations.

As a starting point, I have been working with a chat application which simply allows for the transfer of strings between applications clients. Using these strings within openframeworks and IOSIi can decipher what devices are saying to each other and how to react based upon this.
