Result: screencasting your latest iOS creation (hi, developers) or getting live video from a Processing app on an Android tablet onto a VJ app running on your Mac – and many other possibilities – become possible. (Now, more creative applications may be tough, because of compression … okay, until someone works out a way to compress it more, thus giving us nice, glitchy results. Testing required.)
Bonus: while we work on trying this out here at CDM, our friends at Audanika, makers of the beautiful SoundPrism musical instrument, test it out with some great musical goodies. Now, you can see those tools in powerful combination, making this sort of two CDM posts in one. In the video:
Reflection looks very nice, but the fine people of SyntheFX – makers of some amazing live lighting control – turn us on to AirServer. Aside from a sophisticated UI, it works with Android, too.

Life is good. Doesn’t that put you in a good mood on this Monday? (Erm, fellow … nerds?)
