Perhaps we still have a way to go.
Naperlou, This approach does use HTML5 but the network appliance adds two things: security that separates the control network from the web and easy access to control parameters. It could be done in HTML but this approach makes it much easier because there are basically templates and tools to view all of the available parameters. Simplifies the development but also requires the network appliance.

DuPont's Hytrel elastomer long used in automotive applications has been used to improve the way marine mooring lines are connected to things like fish farms, oil & gas installations, buoys, and wave energy devices. The new bellow design of the Dynamic Tethers wave protection system acts like a shock absorber, reducing peak loads as much as 70%.
