At least since node.js, everyone knows that real time HTTP responses are the next big thing. The secrets of handling incoming requests asynchronously with Ruby is not yet far spread among Rubyists, as the internals needed for such responses are neither specified nor documented and there is a lack of tools.

It fits to write light web services as HTTP streaming file uploads, proxies, twitter, firehoses, etc.
