Hey All,

I’ve been working on an application called CHALKmt which is a multi-touch chalk board application that I made using AS3.

CHALKmt allows multi-user/multi-touch interaction of Chalk Boards that can be scaled/rotated/moved and even wiped clean!
See the video below for an introduction to CHALKmt....

There are 2 versions available for download (Wall & Table).
The difference between the 2 is the number and position of the ‘+’ buttons that add the Chalk Boards to the screen.
The Wall version (ChalkMTWall_Beta 1.0.rar) has 2 top left & top right, while the table version (ChalkMT_Beta 1.0.rar) has 4 on each corner.

This just makes the layout easier for the different Multi-touch setups people are using.
I hope you like it, and as always your feedback is welcome grin

lol, nice!

You might want to have the chalk board load next to the button that was pressed. So if you press the top button it open up top (maybe random angle still), bottom button it loads by the bottom, and same for left right. Then it kind of appears next to the user (if there’s multiple users) since you can assume someone will press a button that’s closest to them normally.

good work my friend. smile

That is very nice. One for the kids. Maybe there could be a kind of message board so you can leave a message and save it for viewing later - like a visitors book in fact.

PopMT, MatchMT, ChalkMT.... whats next then wink

Great work Fairlane

Just a suggestion : only one version + config file so you don’t have to release 2 versions and it would be easier to change the settings.
I just tried you application with a mouse, seems really cool.

Thanks guys! hehe gordee, my creativity when it comes to naming the applications is close to non-exisitent! tongue wink

I wasn’t actually going to build another application of Chalk, but at the last minute there was a request for a Wall version and I wasn’t going to change the program at that stage.
However, in future a config file is definitely the better option.
I purposely left the mouse listeners in the application as testing most of the functions is much easier with the mouse. wink

So what’s next? Well you’ll just have to wait and see tongue laugh
