I was wondering if there was anything out there that could convert native touch in Windows 8 to TUIO? The reason being it would be great to do quick testing/demonstrations of TUIO apps on a tablet such as the Surface tablet.

Thanks!

that goes the other way (TUIO to native touch). I was looking for something that can turn native touch into TUIO messages.

There is an app specifically for HP touchsmart to TUIO: http://gkaindl.com/software/touchsmart-tuio but this is only for touchscreens provided by nextwindow

Thanks I will give them a go. Do you know if they will work in Windows 8? I have heard that the touch in 8 is different to 7.

I haven’t tested these myself on windows 8 (uses WM_POINTER) but they should work, considering they convert WM_TOUCH coordinates to TUIO. WM_TOUCH and WM_GESTURE were introduced for win7 but win8 has backward compatibility to these.
