Controlling lights from within the RStudio IDE

I completely forgot that I made this silly video last year.

It’s terrible quality, but it basically shows me using a Shiny gadget that I wrote to control a light in my house, all from the comfort of the RStudio IDE.

Obvioulsy that’s not really what Shiny gadgets were intended for, but it’s always fun to to do odd things with cool technologies!

The gadget itself is written to take advantage of the super simple API’s that I wrote for my Energenie Remote Control Project.
