Going all the way to IoT with web technologies opens up the door to isomorphic IoT system architectures, which deliver flexible deployment and live migration of code between any device in the overall system. In this vision paper, we propose using WebAssembly to implement lightweight containers and deliver the required portability. Our long-term vision is to use the technology to support developers of liquid IoT applications offering seamless, hassle-free use of multiple devices.
