MultiPoint TUIO is a tool for developers to test applications that make use of Multi-touch trackers that broadcast data using the TUIO protocol. The application is built for Windows XP/Vista using the Microsoft Multipoint SDK. This enables the user to interact with the application using multiple pointer devices, similar to the Microsoft Surface SDK. This tool eases the process of building TUIO applications as it removes the need for testing your application using a true Multi-touch device. Take a look at the video below for a demonstration.

this is what I’d imediatley thought of when people started talking about multitouch

improving the standard os rather than building a new one

any chance of porting this to osx?

great release dan!

no joke one of my first problems that lead me towards nui was multiple mouse support… this will act as a great tool to quickly test with.

i was thinking that the hands should be changed tho like if(count==2) then flip the cursor image so it matches the real hand orientation smile

thanks for the project and looking forward to using and seeing it grow

@ajlovegrove i think we can work something up wink

I’d like to test Multipoint using my version of MTmini (see this thread for details ) together with a mouse. The idea is to use at the same time a mouse and a multitouch pad, dedicating each device to specific functionalities. My question is that if it’s possible to use Multipoint to accomplish this task. Besides that, is it possible to see blobs coming either from CCV or Touchlib as mouse pointer movements? Could gestures be catched and translated by Multipoint in gesture events?
Since I’m a programmer writing pieces of code is not an issue, but I’m quite confused about how this task can be done in practice (which drivers, which libraries to use?).
Any suggestions would be very appreciated!

I’ve tried to use this application in Windows 7 (x64) and it didn’t work. I got these errors (event logger)

Faulting application nameMTMultiMouse.exeversion1.0.0.0time stamp0x4a7350bb

ajlovegrove: It is not possible to easily port this to Mac, since the MultiMouse SDK is Windows only.

At the moment this should not run on Windows 7, since MultiMouse SDK doesn’t support Windows 7. But the new version 1.5 will support. So at that time we will be able to use it on Windows 7.

Hi all, it definitely does not support any 64bit version of windows, the official line from Microsoft is that there are fundamental differences between 64 and 32bit that stop it from working. As uncledj said It does work in Windows 7, I have had it working on my own 32bit Windows 7 machine and it worked fine. I need to get my butt in to gear and release the source code, sorry for the massive delay!

It’s a shame that this doesn’t work in a 64 bit OS. That is what I use, so appears I will be installing a second OS on a separate partition so that I can utilize the utility. Is it possible that this will be supported in windows 64 in the foreseeable future? It is just a little frustrating because of the investment I made switching over.
