YCanvas Remote Controlled By Remotair

At the same time I released YCanvas, I have spotted an interesting starling experiment. I realized I can do this for YCanvas easily with Remotair. Remotair is a concept of transmitting device inputs (gestures, accelerometer, camera etc.) into receiving flash or AIR application. Consists of one transmitting app installed on a mobile device or a tablet and one receiving app running on a PC. In order to pair transmitting and receiving application, RTMFP protocol is used. Implementing remotair reciever into any flash application takes only a few minutes, I spent much more time on touch + multitouch implementation with transitions. At the end of the day, I was able to remote controll YCanvas application with BlackBerry Playbook.

If you want to try it yourself, YCanvas application is available on ycanvas.yoz.sk/remotair, and you can download free Remotair app for Playbook or Android devices from markets. Source is available on ycanvas.yoz.sk.

  1. download Remotair application to your device
  2. open and click connect, you should recieve a channel id (e.g. 1008)
  3. open ycanvas.yoz.sk/remotair on your pc
  4. notice white TextInput on top-right position, insert channel id (e.g. 1008) and press enter.
  5. device get paired with your pc and after that you should se “Touch” option in Remotair application, click it to open Touch view
  6. use one-finer or two-finger gestures to remotely move, rotate and scale application on a pc
