Multi Touch Input Device

Today I made a multi touch input device from a cardboard box, webcam, picture frame, a piece of paper and some tape.

I followed this tutorial: http://nuigroup.com/forums/viewthread/1731/

It was really easy and I had it up and running in les than 30 minutes after I got all the parts together.

Here is a video of it in action and photos of the box.

  1. This is very nice, but what I’d like is a version using a lighted wand. Perhaps emitting a particular light color. Use it like a touch screen, a few feet back from a big LCD.

    Of course, I’d like for OS-X. I don’t need multi-touch but do need mouse click. I’m willing to pay a modest amount.
