    Multi-Touch Experimentation: 1
    Project: Emergence and Navigating Space
    Emerson Taymor & Ben Perkins
    Experimentations in multi-touch environments

    Why? Benefits of touch (ways old software could scale to new
    interface, gallery exhibits could have a new dimension), see how well we
    can do it, explore possibilities of new interface

    and our "statement"

    To produce and build a large-format multi-touch interface. Multi-touch
    technology takes advantage of intuitive tactile motions and creates a
    more natural and efficient user experience. It opens up possibilities in
    providing a new medium for work and play.

    History of touch products
    Precedents in experimentation by users
    Successful products
    Corporate prototypes
    Rough look of our piece
    More detailed technical information
    Basic functionality
    Basic visualization methods
    Advanced visualization methods
    Why and purpose

    Links of note: - Huge developers of multi-touch interface. Amazing video of their work. - Microsoft playanwhere and bluetooth photosynch. More rudimentry Microsoft sketches - Video of a project a man made in one day that shows advanced 3d interaction through the use of gloves and wiimore sensing - Johnny Lee is the MASTER of the WII and interfacing with it. A collection of his projects and amazing work in the field. - reactables. Incredible interfacing device using objects that are detected after being placed on table. Beautiful work and possibilities. Library in processing. - A set of visualization methods using multitouch. Really awesome video showing a quick sample of each visualization. Shows range of possibilities. - Blob detection library. Key in reading data from our table. - Microsoft Surface. Everyone knows it, is it the future?

    We believe the future of technology and interaction lies in the multitouch realm of the world. We hope our experimentations uncover experiences, or visualizations that we did not think were possible. We also would like to prove (to ourselves) that two college students on a very limited budget are able to produce a successful prototype of the future of digital interfacing technology. Ideally most programs would easily be portable over to the multi-touch environment, with minor tweaks.

    I did a project on leveraging tangible control of virtual elements when I was an undergrad. It didnt really work out due to my sensors detection tolerance, but here's the project proposal and here's the results.
