Home-brew Multi-touch

flash, multi-touch, open source

  • a multi-touch display large enough to facilitate use by several people at once
  • an API for flash that would let us quickly prototype multi-touch interfaces and applications
  • Want to jump into the multi-touch arena by creating a system of your own? We’ve just published the code from our own prototype system at Google Code: it should be all the software you need to make your own FTIR system: a back-end app to run a multi-touch server, and an API to create your multi-touch flash applications.

    You can find the source code for the FTIR server and the Flash API at http://code.google.com/p/ideo-multitouch/. Everything is licensed under Creative Commons.
