Hi Christian,

> Regarding ambient light (and also some other devices/APIs you're discussing recently, e.g., vibrator) I'd like to draw your attention to [1] which provides comprehensive information about "sensory experience". The data formats which we're using are standardized in MPEG-V Part 3 referred to as "Sensory Information" (defining sensory effects) and we have also implementations (annotation tool, stand-alone player, Web browser plugin) and datasets. All details you can find at [1] but I'm also happy to provide further details if needed.

This certainly looks interesting, I'd be especially interested in looking at any JavaScript API you might expose and demos built on it. But before going there, I'm sorry to have to ask this question though: what kind of licensing terms is MPEG-V under? Altogether too often MPEG does highly interesting lab research which we then cannot deploy due to licensing restrictions :(
