Feature list

Goals for the project in general

  • OctoMY™ Is faststable and ultimately flexible.
  • It has a friendly user interface for beginners while not getting in the way of the experts.
  • It takes care of many boring but important things like pairing of devices, maintaining connections over unstable links, security etc.
  • It is distributed by nature and allows for many complex configurations like flocking.
  • It is extensible, and the API will allow new features to be added with ease.
