Community Core Vision (CCV)

Community Core Vision (CCV) is a computer vision framework for multitouch and other emerging interaction types. I co-founded and developed CCV for Google Summer of Code in 2008. It has since been downloaded over 1,000,000 times and utilized by companies, researchers, and hobbyists around the world.

Squirrel Mobile Pollution Monitors

The Squirrel Mobile Pollution Monitor is a device, created by Shannon Spanhake, that measures pollution levels and can interface with various mobile devices. I developed a playful interface for Shannon to showcase the device's capabilities. The interface displays on a cell phone the current pollution levels (ppm) and animates environmental changes based on those levels.

Slider: A Dynamic Multi-player Game

Slider is a tangible multi-player game. The games utilizes reactivision software, along with Flash, to detect fiduciary (symbol) block movements. The game is played by moving these symbols on a table. Players can enter and exit the playing field at any time. The game adapts to the number of players. The lower the score the better; the first player with a score of 12 ends the game.

Live Composer

Live Composer is a interactive music exploration application. Physical blocks (with fiduciary symbols) are moved around on a table and correlate to time and pitch. Moving the blocks creates a visual within a flash interface that notates and plays back the composition in real-time.

Audiotouch OS – Flash Multi-touch Audio Environment

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.

Wall Pong (WONG) – Interactive Multiplayer Multitouch Pong Game – Now with source code!!!


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.

Argos: Super Cool Multitouch Music Interface Builder

If you’re familiar with the Jazzmutant Lemur, you’ll want to get familiar with Argos Interface Builder by Dimitri Diakopoulos using the great c++ framework openFrameworks.

Last summer I took part in Google Summer of Code as a mentor. Dimitri proposed a multitouch music interface builder and I thought it was a fantastic idea. An opensource lemur; who wouldn’t like that??? Dimitri was chosen as a student for GSoC and I was able to mentor him as he developed Argos. It’s come a long way, and with a little help from the opensource community, it has potential to be incredible!

Who Doesn’t Like Lava Lamps?

If you’re familiar with multitouch, you’re probably familiar with Jeff Han’s TED demo. In it, there’s an example of a lava application that shows an interesting use of multitouch.

A few months ago, I was trying to work on something similar.
