Thanks for all the positive replies guys  :D

(1) On connecting to the Wiimote.  I suspect you lot will be a lot better than me at this, but I find what works for me under Win7 is this:
Quote
(1) Start -> Devices and Printers
(2) Right click Nintendo thingy and Remove Device
(3) Add Device
(4) Hold down button 1 and 2.
(5) Go through the motions of adding the device ( still holding them down ).
(6) Wait for the installation to be successful  ( still holding them down ).
(7*) You might try telling Windows to skip windows updates for this device  ( still holding them down ).
(8) Open Wii Tuio  || Release Buttons
(9) Connect

(2) The source code for the project is available at http://code.google.com/p/wiituio/   I have a friend who is interested in working with rural communities in India so please let me know how it goes!

(3) Yes, you should be able to use it with dual screens - however you may need to modify the source code a little.  Something about PrimaryScreen width and height - I suspect you will want the VirtualScreen or something similar.  I have an experimental version which can talk to two Wiimotes for large displays.  I used in a recent research paper - but will happily provide you with the source should you need it.  Just so you know, I don't often check these boards so you may be better off contacting me at stexcalibur.com if its urgent.

Cheers!

You can always give http://code.google.com/p/wiituio/ a go if you want to use Windows 7 with multi touch :) you do need to install a driver though (instructions in the readme) so it is a little more involved than getting Smoothboard working. :)

Sweet, thanks for the feedback!  ;) 

I've updated the downloads on our site with the new application: http://code.google.com/p/wiituio/downloads/list

I suspect it is because of the target platform; try these binaries - they may sort it as they are forced to x86 (but will still talk to both the x86 and x64 driver). :)

John

EDIT: You don't need to run 'Multitouch.Service.Console.exe and Multitouch.Driver.Console.exe' because WiiTouch implements it's own version of this. :-)  Just install the driver (as admin) - do the remove/add thing in device manager and then run the program and you should be good to go!

Hey Guys and Girls!

So for the Windows 7 multi-touch support, do to our Google Code project and download: WiiTouch [Version 2.0] x86 Binaries (supports TUIO and Windows 7 Touch)

http://code.google.com/p/wiituio/downloads/list

Would love to know your experiences!

Hey guys,

Sorry to bump the topic but I do have something of value to add! :-)

I have written an app which smooths and classifies the cursor input with multiple pens and can generate TUIO and Windows 7 events by directly interfacing with Daniel's aforementioned driver.  Essentially meaning it's done. :-)

I just made a thread here where you can read more: http://www.wiimoteproject.com/wiimote-whiteboard/wiimote-with-windows-7-and-tuio-multi-touch-support/msg11968/?topicseen#msg11968

Here is a more detailed description:

WiiTUIO is an application which stabilises the IR sources captured by a Wii Remote (Wiimote) and presents them as TUIO and Windows 7 Touch messages.

This project aims to improve the stability of the IR sources captured by the Wiimote using some thresholds and spatio-temporal classification. The application generates Windows 7 Touch messages and TUIO events using these stabilised contacts.

Each raw IR source captured by the Wiimote is either assigned to the best existing tracked source or generates a new tracker. This means that TUIO events can be generated from stable data without the jitter (namely, false-positives generated between two IR sources and the unordered source buffer) that occurs when trying to use the Wiimote to capture true multi-touch IR.

And here is a demo video (sorry for the muffled sound - it was taken on my mobile):

Hey folks!

My name is John Hardy and my friend Christopher Bull and I are currently developing an application which means that you can use a single Wiimote to do full multi-touch with all the trimmings on Windows 7.

Both TUIO and Windows 7 touch events are supported in the trunk at the moment and we hope to have a working binary download with a simple but powerful UI by the end of the week.  I will post a link to our Google Code project as soon as we are done. :-)

I hope this will be some use to you guys and remove a few locks on the door to making proper multi-touch accessible to the masses!
