For Dell XT AND HP TX2, windows 7 and n trig beta multitouch drivers, I made a small applet to translate windows TOUCH events to TUIO, enabling all those nice flash etc multitouch applications to run on current multitouch PC/tablets.
EDIT 26 JAN: Slightly improved version, cf post on page 3.
EDIT 4 FEB: small update, now the Q key quits, and Esc key hides the application correctly.
EDIT 14 FEB: it also runs on HP TX2 (probably requires some more work to calibrate. cf http://nuigroup.com/forums/viewreply/27497/
EDIT 21 JULY: posted a beta that supports calibration, now under development(cf http://nuigroup.com/forums/viewreply/39661/ )
Attached is a preliminary version of the W2TUIO application (made in c#, .Net). Approximately 50 downloads were registered until now (keeps clearing when I update the document)
Simple: by extracting the zip archive. (EDIT: Now only 1 executable.)
Make sure to have some MT client applications that run with TUIO. I will attach a zip archive of the standard flash demos+ FLOSC app. in one subsequent post. EDIT: could not upload the files, please find them the “Demos\Flash Demos” folder of http://nuispace.com/ss/MTmini%20package%20v1.zip
* Windows 7 beta
* N-Trig beta MT drivers (http://www.n-trig.com/Content.aspx?Page=Multi_Touch )
0. when running flash MT apps: first start the FLOSC application. (EDIT: in the folder “Touchlib_Tracking_Software\flosc” in the zip file mentioned above)
1. run your favorite MT application - it should NOT run in fullscreen, but maximize instead.
2. go to the W2TUIO folder and double click the application W2TUIO
4. quit (keypress “q” or use popup menu on tray icon)
NICE MULTITOUCH APPLICATIONS

KNOWN BUG: on exit, the mouse cursor is sometimes lost:
RESOLUTION: on a text editor (email, word whatever) touch somewhere to get a on-screen tip icon.
Currently the application is calibrated for a Dell XT, taskbar at the bottom of the screen. Soon, I will work on multiple options/hands-on calbiration.
Request: please post your use of this application - I am curious what you think....
