Hows life? Just introducing myself... My name is Ka'i. I'm looking for help using multitouch to control a robot. If you want more info send me an email or PM I would love to hear from you:)

Well I'm interested... I'm sure more people would be interested as well. Can you just throw it in here? We're a pretty varied group, so adding your area of expertise to the mix couldn't hurt anything.

But yeah, I'd really like to know what you're up to.

Oh, and life's good. ;)

Well the robot is to compete in the FIRST Robotics Competition. http://usfirst.org. I am planning a touchtable with rear projection to control the robot. Problems are that I need a good way to interface the computer with a "driver station" where only USB inputs are allowed (ex. joysticks). I want to emulate a 2d sort of joystick with x-y coordinates that let me control the robot with multitouch. We have 5 more weeks to finish the robot+control system.
