Exceptionally cool things you can do with LinkPulse: The Red Box

We already knew that our customers are cool innovators with great ideas. That's why they use LinkPulse. But we were nonetheless struck by awe when we found out one of them had created this red box click counter with data from LinkPulse.

Per Åstrøm is Technical Manager New Platforms at and together with David Hall he made this during a "hack day" at Bonnier (owner company of Tv4).

Basically, it shows a number known in LP as "State Now", based on traffic the past 15 minutes, in addition to an up or down pointing arrow indicating whether traffic is going up or down.

Data is fed by an XML feed from the LinkPulse application.

We love it!!
