Initial Multitouch Aesthetic Plans

My aim is to create a clean and simple table design. I don’t want the table aesthetics to outweigh or detract from the musical interface and interaction. I did a quick sketch of my initial Aesthetic thoughts using Google SketchUp. I will include pictures of the actual progress and SketchUp files once the building process begins. The following design is not set in stone, but will be the basis as I start the building.

    Hi Ryan,

    I’m not sure which package you’re referring to. If you’re talking about the smoke demo and mouse driver, those don’t work with tbeta. On the tbeta website you can find more demos under Flash Clients on the Downloads Tab and on nuigroup.com/forum if you search TUIO Mouse you can find a mousedriver for tbeta (eventually the mouse driver will also be on the tbeta website).

    If you’re talking about the flash demos. Make sure you read the getting started guide on the tbeta site (you have to set the global security settings to get the flash applications running correctly).

    hello I wanted to know how to attach the projector and the camera to “table”. I built a wooden base hours I wanted to know how to attack these items
    Furthermore, I wanted to know where I place the camera thanks

    have you seen this?.. i presume its projected onto the glass, but
    i also think the glass has a multi touch surface and not tracked by a cam

    im actually thinking of a horizontal version of what you’re doing

    maybe use my unsed chimney breast and a glass with a thin reflective backing insead of paper (if possible)putting the box (projector etc) inside the converted chimney breast and have my telly going through a pc base unit…. so when the pc isnt on… its a normal mirror on the chimney breast…. when the pc is on.. its a touch screen surface you can access the internet, watch tv… play music on etc

    😀

  • DjAlanB, I have seen it. It does use a camera and LLP technique (laser light plane). Therefore, it’s like the majority of large screens you see. Many people have done it using glass just like that.
