Developments in Sensor & Browser Apis have opened up many opportunities for your website to react and respond based on the users device, environment or input. As of right now there are many great Sensor & Browser APIs that you can take advantage of including Light Sensors, Orientation and Speech Recognition. Because these APIs are available in more devices than you would think they are more accessible than ever.

Whether it’s a practical implementation of the Light Sensor API or abducting a cat with a combination of sensors - we’ll look at some simple code demos, explore the possibilities, tools and resources needed to get started creating engaging and creative effects, visualisations and experiences.
