Syncing up your mobile device with the desktop browser is a case of going to a special URL and entering in a short code. Then you can play alone or take on friends, using simple gestures on your touch screen to control the action. For example, moving a bicycle requires quickly swiping in a circle.
Super Sync Sports uses a range of HTML5 technologies but it’s particularly designed to show off the cross-device synchronization capabilities of WebSockets. While the control isn’t quite perfect (I found myself accidentally swiping to another Chrome for Mobile tab a couple of times), it’s a fun mid-week diversion for sure.
