Bucket Balls

Bucket Balls lets you connect multiple devices (Smartphones, Laptops,...). Each device becomes a "Bucket". You can create some colored balls inside a bucket. If the device supports the "deviceorientation"-event you can slop the balls from one bucket into another. You can create rulesets to define which bucket is allowed to drop its balls in which other buckets.
