Things & Firebase
While building our Experiments Tent for Google I/O 2017, we realized that on-screen controls were so 2016.
So we built a couple things. This repository contains the code that powers the knobs and sliders controlling The Spirit, as well as the LED lights in the podiums for our Quick, Draw! multiplayer experience.
The Spirit controls, located in controller-app/, uses a newly created driver for Android Things, the ADCV2x analog controller. It reads data from the sliders and dials and updates a Firebase Realtime Database.
Quick, Draw! Multiplayer
The contestant podiums for Quick, Draw! function in the opposite direction.
Rather than send data out, they listen for Firebase Realtime Database value change events, and update their state accordingly. This was especially easy to implement since Quick, Draw! was already using Firebase.
They were way ahead of their time. #trendsetters
