The Newbound Network is an HTML5 app framework for connecting devices like computers, smartphones, tablets and other devices on the Internet of Things (IoT) directly and securely with one another. Makers and developers can easily incorporate the Newbound Network framework into their own apps and “smart-things” to extend their creation’s functionality with our easy to use Java and Javascript API.

All of the functionality in our framework is provided by small, discrete libraries we call “bots”. Each bot consists of a back-end JSON API written in java, and a streamlined reference implementation front-end written in HTML, CSS and Javascript which showcases the functionality of that bot.

You can easily incorporate these functionalities in your own Java application, or even mash them up into a new HTML5 app using nothing but HTML, CSS and Javascript (examples here and here).

Here are some of the bots currently available on the Newbound Network:
