I just wanted to put out a little preview of what I’ve been working on. I’ve been modding the existing Multi Touch Crayon Physics software that was done by the guys at multitouch-barcelona.com into a little game that requires the user to get the ball to the goal by any means necessary (just like the original Crayon Physics). Of course it’s multi touch, multi user, and I’m currently working on using objects (such as pens, cans and whatnot) to interact with the ball (for example, use a pen to create a bridge for the ball). It’s done in AS3 using Touchlib.
Due to some problems with my camera filter the application is currently running on a laptop screen while all the interaction is being done on the table. My new bandpass filter is on it’s way and should shortly take care of this problem, allowing me to use the LCD matrix I’ve built into my table. Remember, this is just a preview so there’s limited possibilities in the game as of yet, there’s only one very simple level, and you might spot some small bugs here and there.
I’ll post more material as soon as my table is fully operational, hopefully by then I’ll be able to share some more stuff as far as the software goes.
