Although there are many smart devices and networked embedded object applications using World Wide Web technologies, it is still a big step to go towards a true Web of Things. It is e.g. difficult to build ubiquitous WoT applications that work in and accross multiple environments. Approaches which aggregate WoT ressources by centralizing all the resource information, have problems: total dependency on external infrasture, lack of private WoT management, inflexible communication patterns and

To solve these problems, we propose uBox, a local WoT platform which can be a stand-alone server to make your WoT environment, with interfaces to connect the other local WoT platforms. This way, which we call uBoXing, we can create World Wide WoT platform with a distributed architecture. This paper describes the concept of a distributed resource management architecture, and how we implement the concept into software. Also, we will discuss the platform with the example application in SmartTecO environment.
