Multitouch news

Postby Achim » Fri Dec 14, 2007 6:18 am

Great multitouch news. Stantum, the guys behind the lemur, have "announced" their new products

There's a fact sheet for a 15.4 inch display here
http://nuigroup.com/?ACT=28&fid=16&aid=527_LgMvz7hjtmzsJM92D4Sz

and a presentation here
http://216.239.59.104/search?q=cache:jZJDTvdSV8AJ:nuigroup.com/%3FACT%3D28%26fid%3D16%26aid%3D526_ia8nfVDYPIcQhVUsjGTj+stantum+touch+15.4&hl=de&ct=clnk&cd=2&gl=de&client=firefox-a

The 15.4" inch seems to be available in january and > 30" will follow.
Does touch allow multi-cursor input already? Would a wrapper application which sends t-script commands via tcp work?

Any clues on the 30" res?

seems it's been deleted out of the google cache. It was a cached html version of some pdf (which hasn't been available in the first place)

It mentioned model 15.4" for january, some 12" for february and 3.5" for march (I think)
> 30" had no specific date, so I guess around summer?

On nuigroup someone mentions a price of about 5k (special offer)

here's a link to Johnny Lee's home page where he's got some kooky projects going uing the wii remote to track IR sources.

http://www.cs.cmu.edu/~johnny/projects/wii/

The wii-mote has a little camera in the end that tracks the so-called 'sensor bar' that sits on top of your screen when wii-ing normally.

Johnny's idea is to make some IR LED pens and, by pointing the wii-mote at the screen, it will transmit the screen coordinates of up to 4 moving points to make the cheapest multitouch rig out there.

This may have finally convinced me to bo out and buy a Wii remote! :)

Rod.

To work with that device, it would have to accept to ts VGA or DVI-I input a video signal from TouchDesigner, say on Designer's second monitor, connected to say the second monitor out of the graphics card.

A TouchDesigner control panel would occupy the full second monitor screen area.

Then the (finger #, U and V, up/down) messages coming from the API would be translated to tscript "click" and/or "controlpanel -s" commands, that would simply be run in tscript.

So we'll work with you first lucky person that gets one of these babies.

How would this work? If I run "click /controlpanel 0.4 0.3" it sets the controlpanel's top container's u and v values, but the simulated mouse click is not passed through to any of the buttons/slider making up the actual controlpanel (with panelclickthrough = on)
