I uploaded a couple of low quality video's of the NUI Framework we have been developing in c++, displayed on our improved sensitive, no hard pressure multi-touch table. As a matter of fact, I can generate input on it by blowing from a short distance. BTW we didn't sand or polish the edges of the...
Together with colleagues Peter Bomark, Dr. Johannes Hirche and Tim Roth (website) we have been working on a Diffused Illumination setup. We use 4 illuminators, frostened lee filter on the inside of the box, a 3m 700 DMS projector, lee filter as a diffuser and an unibrain cam.
I ordered a couple of samples of protective film to see if they were suitable for our multi-touch installation. You could imagine, if you heavily use multi-touch that the projection screen gets damaged, because it's a fragile material in most cases. The criteria where that the material had to be...
Yesterday we made a first test spray of the ~ logo.
Check below the promo video of ~group (NUI Group), that co-researcher Chris Moore made in Adobe Aftereffects.
Today we received our new baby, the 3M 700 DMS short throw projector, which we will be testing this week.
Jeff Han talks about multi-touch at Nextfest 07. Also briefly flamed Iphone. I love how this video at the end shows how intuitive multi-touch is. (See this about 3 year old kit using the multi-touch wall)
It's already been a while since ~tv beta is online. Check it out at THE community related to multi-touch NUI Group: http://www.nuigroup.com/
I just ordered a bunch of 880 nm IR illuminators from Kingbright, to test next week for DI (Diffused Illumination).
We have been working on a new design of our chassis.
One of the members of our NUI Group Tim Roth, from Switzerland is coming to Sweden from the 18th till the 23th of September to work with us on multi-touch research and development. Tim has proven to be a great passionate person involved into this field.
Apple announced the release of the Ipod Touch. This new version of the Ipod supports videos, photos, music and websites in 8GB and 16GB models starting at 299 USD.
When I started getting into multi-touch I had this idea that it would be cool to have some kind of laptop with 2 touch surfaces, so basically with no physical keyboard at all. Even though the concept might be fun and interesting for some applications, it would be one hell of a task to write a...
My friend, co researcher and also co-founder of the NUI Group Pawel "Solydzajs" Solyga presented his OpenTouch concept at Google in Mountview USA for the Google Summer of Code 2007.
