HiveKit is a plugin for Rhino/Grasshopper enabling you to:
- virtually simulate your complex interactive experience within your rhino/grasshopper model;
- easily program a network of interactive devices, directly from the Grasshopper interface
- use advanced distributed algorithms to synchronize all devices in your network and create global behaviors without the need for a central control unit or control system infrastructure.
HiveKit comprises a virtual machine running on the embedded platforms which is responsible for several functions: manages the communication between devices, runs the distributed algorithms and listens for new behaviours (viathegrasshopperinterface). Once a new behaviour has been created in Grasshopper and downloaded into one embedded device (viatheDeploycomponent), the code is virally propagated into the network without any additional configuration steps.
