We finally decided to publish our multitouch blog, where we expect to share things with everyone who is working with this wonderful technology!
For us it all started in 2007, when we got involved in projects with Fundação CERTI, here in Florianopolis, Brazil. They built their own multitouch table and did some very interesting projetcs specifically for corporate training for companies like Petrobras. Our role was to build Flash apps who could handle not only the multitouch interaction, but also communicate between the table and the screen – yes, the equipment has a LCD TV in front of the table. So we have two Flash apps who communicate using Local Connection. Because Fundação CERTI wanted two teams playing against each other, we also had to handle the communication between PCs, using a socket server built in Java.
Well, we had to learn a LOT this year, and it was great! Multitouch interaction is vey challenging and we are passionate about it. We hope through this blog to show some work we are doing and most of all, to present all the cool stuff that is being done by the multitouch community.
