shiftr.io is a MQTT and HTTP interface... what does that mean? Essentially its a platform that allows you to pass data in and out between different ‘Internet of Things’ connected devices. It is specifically good for developing these types of devices whilst in the prototyping stage. Use of ESP32 Development IOT microprocessors (essentially cheap internet connected arduinos) allows you to connect two internet connected microprocessors together or connect them to faceOSC via Processing. faceOSC & shift.io are essentially a cheap opensource face control workstation.
We will use shiftr.io for all IOT enabled projects - as part of the Toolkit this is only the ESP32 enabled Pinball. However we think you should be able to enable the other EBC projects using principles from this project.
