Well, I never did a ‘proper’ video of my Audiotouch work, so after 2 years I decided to reshoot some video and experiment with my new HD video camera. The video is also in preparation for another how-to video that I’m developing that builds off the Mtmini video (check that out if you haven’t ) and shows how to create a simple multi-touch surface quick and easy.
I’m hoping to eventually get back to these applications and improve on a few of them. They’ve gone untouched for almost 2 years and were originally written prior to the iphone, ipad, and microsoft surface. It’s amazing how far the technology has come in such a short time.
Enjoy and let
Wall Pong is an interactive multi-player multitouch pong type game I wrote in AS3 a couple years ago. The aim is to get the ball into the opposing goal. You can see Wong within my Audiotouch OS software. I’ve been meaning to release the source code and game for quite some time and finally I had the chance to clean up the code (it still could use WAY more cleaning and probably re-factoring), but it’s in good enough shape for others to use.

It should be a great openin; if
Here’s some pictures from the second event where AudioTouch was on display.
New video of the new system that loads and unloads applications. Also, the desktop is now sending out OSC message to PureData to create some sounds based on finger number and position on screen.
In such a short amount of time I’ve hit 1000 downloads! Well, actually it’s 1062 to be exact. Thanks everyone who has been testing and downloading the applications. Feel free to let me know how everything is running. I’d love to hear more feedback.
On another note, the table is about ready for display! It features 4 access points that allow people to load a menu where they can select applications to load. Many applications can be loaded and at the same time. Pressing on the desktop creates wind and glitch type sounds. There’s currently 4 other applications that can be loaded which include: Musical Wong (to be released soon), Musical Squares, Audioshape Sequencer, and MultiKey (half and whole keyboard).
New video showcasing the final table at work. The software is all a work in progress and new releases will be coming soon of all applications as well as new ones. If you like the video, please pass it on. If you don’t like the video, please pass it on anyway. Enjoy!
