Multi-Touch Interaction Research (video)

Still00Amazing video of a touch screen interface – “While touch sensing is commonplace for single points of contact, multi-touch sensing enables a user to interact with a system with more than one finger at a time, as in chording and bi-manual operations. Such sensing devices are inherently also able to accommodate multiple users simultaneously, which is especially useful for larger interaction scenarios such as interactive walls and tabletops.” [via] Link.

    Probably the coolest thing I’ve seen in a LONG time. Where can I buy one?

    A better question would be how do I make one. Cause I want to know.

    Interesting… Apple recently filed for a patent for the same feature.

    The ACM paper written by these guys is available.

    Unfortunately you either need the appropriate subscriptions or to pony up $10 to buy it.

    So I’m $10 poorer. :)

    It’s only four pages (the construction is surprisingly simple), but whilst I was able to figure out some of the techniques required before reading it, there’s a few other issues and improvements I probably wouldn’t have discovered easily.

    I may not be able to distribute the paper, but I’ll have a construction log and software available once I’m done building and coding :)
