The grid application is fine for demo but is there anything available that you guys know of that can be used.

Something like GoogleEarth would be just awesome to work with this way, however i havent been able to find anything.

What about that software that is used in the presentation with the sparkles??

I have been able to compile NASA's World Wind that recently has a plugin for the wiimote. It works fine.

See this for compilation details: http://www.worldwindcentral.com/wiki/Compiling_the_sources


What would be useful, is to have the Wiimote Library extended with TUIO Protocol* output. This would allow the Wiimote to be used with "many" existing multitouch applications.

what you are reffering to is the plug in for headtracking i assume?

I was asking about a feature where it would be possible to control the maps like its done in the multigrids, with its zoom and moving...

hey guys, anyone still viewing this thread?!

Just wondering if there is a TUIO version out there for MAC OS? I'm trying to get one done with XCode, but unfortunately don't know what I'm doing!!

there's a great looking bit of multipoint software out there by some high school genius for his science project.

I really want to play around with finger tracking image manipulation...


also... anyone seen/fancy creating a mac version of glovepie?

Is there a multi point gesture section of glovepie?

Thanks everyone - this is some awsome stuff. - so much potential and accessible for everyone too. bring on the future!
