We needed to combine classic "Snake" game concept with Web Sockets and NodeJS technologies to make it happen.
The game allows up to 6 people to play snake on outdoor LED screens in the busy shopping street in Antwerp, using their smartphones or tablets as game controllers.
The synchronization happens through Web Sockets that create an interactive communication session between the user's mobile devices and the NodeJs (Express.js, HAPI) server. No apps and no downloads, just the browser and access to the web.
