Heard that Windows 7 already support multi-touch. Is it possible for wiimote project to work in it?

Hi!

It is very early to say, W7 is available for beta testers so far and I assume things are going to change on the way to release date.

If there is support for multitouch displays - it is not far away from using a Wiimote and 2 (or 4) IR-pens

True multitouch allows for more input than just 2 sources (multiple users)

We have to wait and see...

Sources say that multi-touch is the case, although there could be complications using this with IR-pens and such depending on how accessible it is. But you can check out this blog which demonstrates the multi-touch function, whether it's going to work with wiimote/IR-pens I leave for the day when we actually know. :-)

It obviously does work with ir pens... its just as far as I can see noone has yet incorporated it into their whiteboard application for wiimote. It has been incorporated into the software the Eduard from Webcam Whiteboard has developed in his own hardware and software solution - that looks a little like a reboxed wimote system of sorts! http://www.cybernetyx.com/web/ Very interesting. Also I understand that Hitachi/Epson and a few others have now started to incorporate interactivity into their projectors including multitouch
