This thesis describes extensions made to the Reality Editor system to improve its ability to browse augmented reality content and to customize the flow of data between Internet of Things objects. The augmented reality browsing is improved by a platform shift to web technologies, while the data customization is provided by the design of logical operators that can be added to a network of objects. The contribution lies in the implementation of a novel grid-constrained, data flow visual programming language called Logic Crafting, which provides a modularized and extensible environment for manipulating the data passed between loT objects. Associated contributions involve web service modules that allow non-developers to connect loT objects with arbitrary remote services, and an implemented mechanism for changing the permissions model for loT objects on a per-resource level. The thesis then presents a number of prototypes enabled by using web technologies for augmented reality, as well as demonstrative use cases for programming loT objects with Logic Crafting. Finally, the thesis reflects on the implication of these features and prototypes on the subject of augmented multiuser environments.
