As of right now, there are many great Sensor & Browser APIs — like Light Sensors, Orientation, Speech Recognition and more — that you can use to attune your website to the users’ device, environment or input. And guess what? They’re available in more devices than you’d think, making them more accessible than ever.
Whether you’re after something as practical as a dimmable website based on a camera light sensor, or something as universally useful as abducting a cat with speech recognition, orientation and light, chances are, it’s 100% achievable. Let’s look at some simple code demos, explore some outlandish possibilities, and dig up the tools and resources needed to create engaging and creative sensory experiences.
