Want you may verify that lag your self? As of now, you’ll be able to: Google has posted the supply code for WALT, its latency timer. When you’ll have to construct some Arduino-based mostly hardware to carry out the checks, Google guarantees that the entire thing will value you lower than $50. You will not have to go all-out and recreate the corporate’s TouchBot, then. True, it will principally be helpful to builders who have to examine their code, nevertheless it might come in useful should you’ve ever needed to show that a telephone was unacceptably sluggish.
