Despite the multi-touch framework SynergyNet still being useful, it is starting to show its age. Its now time for a new framework to take its place which offers the same functionality but uses modern technologies. SynergyMesh is the spiritual successor to the SynergyNet framework. It offers most of the distinguishing features of SynergyNet, such as its multi-touch gesture support and advanced networking, as part of a web-based platform. This allows the framework to be used on a much wider range of devices without any complicated set-up.
Normally I post about my HCI research but I thought today that I’d do something which is unrelated but may be of use to some people.

I managed to find a cost effective method of stopping them using safe lists.
