Thanks Andy! It would be fun to simulate blowing soap bubbles too!

Hey Martin... Yeah, that was my mistake when I was shooting the video.  I should have stood on the other side of the laptop... But to answer your question... yes, it's quite easy to change the direction of the wind (it's just a vector) although the BreathOSC app only sends magnitude data (how hard you blow on it).  It would be nice to get the app to tie in the compass heading so as you rotate the phone and blow on it, the wind moves in that direction.  This definition is included in the latest version of Firefly (in the examples folder) in case you wanted to test it out.  The BreathOSC app is free too (at least for iphone... not sure about Android).

Very cool! Could the flag sense the wind direction too? It seems to move the wrong way now... :)
