MultiTouch Table Proof of Concept
I got a basic proof of concept multi-touch table built this morning from stuff I scavenged at work (box from Shipping, tracing paper from Engineering, iSight from Desktop Support). It's pretty rough, but does work well enough to demo the principles.
I'm using NUI's tbeta software, they also have a video with the construction directions for the hardware, which took maybe 30 minutes to setup.
It's pretty twitchy, and is very much dependent on the lighting environment. Moderately bright diffuse light seems better than direct bright light.
