The Web of things is an emerging scenario in which everyday objects are connected to the Internet and can answer to HTTP queries with structured data. This paper presents a system that allows users to build networks of everyday objects using visual tags as proximity technology. The system back-end is based on Service-oriented Architecture languages and tools for the run-time composition of "Things" establishing connections the authors call hyperpipes.
