Dear all,

Last night I tried to make a proof of concept of sending TUIO messages to a browser, and it worked! So now I can build a multitouch application using Javascript, HTML, CSS, Canvas, etc. See the screencast at

What I basically do is capturing the TUIO events and forward them to a message queue which also talks stomp. Then I open a web page that will read data in the message queue in streaming fashion. I can also say that the data is pushed from the message queue to the browser. Comet anyone?

I build this using orbited and pytuio. Check the complete code at

It is just a few hours work so don’t expect something fancy. I also still don’t know when I can continue playing with this since I’m actually in the middle of writing my master thesis.

Let me know what you guys think. Thanks!

Is there anything else besides this available for using TUIO with JavaScript? It is already awesome to have touches but I look for gestures like pinch etc.. smile Seems like I have to parse the data on my own so far?

It might be a little late, but Glassomium ( allows you to make applications solely with HTML5, CSS and Javascript. You can check out the wiki for more information about multi-touch development:
