Curious if it is possible to connect two framer prototypes? Trying to make a tablet invoke responses on a monitor. Any ideas?

Thanks!

I haven't done this with framer, but if you use node.js and socket.io you can control something on a desktop using another device. http://tutorialzine.com/2015/02/smartphone-remote-control-for-presentations/

You can also use firebase for a more prebuilt solution as well.

I did this recently using fire base module

Depending on your context and time, you might also consider a wizard of oz prototype where one person runs a prototype on the phone and another on the monitor demonstrating the responses..

In addition to the methods already suggested, I'd consider Pusher. Very fast, and a bit more straightforward than Firebase since it's specifically built for just firing events back and forth. I've used it for multiscreen Framer prototypes, and it works like a charm.

I am using Marks firebase module a lot for such cases https://github.com/marckrenn/framer-Firebase

For example here spotify android and wear prototypes connected with firebase “Prototype with real data in Framer, from JSON to multi-device and internet of things” @mamezito https://medium.com/framer-prototyping/prototype-with-real-data-in-framer-from-json-to-multi-device-and-internet-of-things-6eb1ae8b8325
