I'm interested in this subject too, so if anyone can share any info,
it'll be appreciated.

What I am not suref is how good they are or weather by thinking of moving my work out into the physical world I am asking too much of Ruby and may as well just learn to code my experiment use their respective C-like interfaces.

Does anyone have experience of these platforms and working with them using either their native environment or as I would like toode with; Ruby. Are there any other suitable platforms out there with a wide fan base/support network.

So it should be possible to createystem which controls hardware, displays some funky graphics to the web.hats more, Processing may have a Ruby port (i've just heard whispers of it). So in theory I could code the scenario I've just described in Ruby.
