New REST interface for efficient data exchange

June 14th, 2013

The next version of InstantReality will contain a preliminary version of a new REST interface, which allows X3D applications to exchange data (i.e. field values) with other applications, such as X3DOM web apps or even your own local renderer.

InstantIO, the hardware server of InstantReality, is the first component to be equipped with this interface. Application writers can get access to hardware devices and their data with HTTP commands or WebSockets, allowing for integration of devices such as Microsoft Kinect or the Leap inside a web application.
