Today on Create Digital Music, I have a look at tasty, drool-worthy free multitouch frameworks, one for Max/MSP patchers and one for Python coders:

Roll Your Own Multitouch Screens, Tables: Max Multitouch Framework, PyMT

I’m curious, though: who out there is already employing multitouch interfaces in their live visual work? Particularly for working with 3D (albeit with gestures on a 2D plane), I imagine this could be powerful stuff. Obviously, we have quite a few iPhone/iPod touch users, but anyone using bigger devices? How do you integrate multitouch for your work — painting? 3D space navigation?

    NUI Group is an excellent resource for anyone keen to work with multi touch.

  • SkyRon

    This is really fantastic!

    Any Python coders in the South Florida area out there interested in hacking together a Reac-Table type of gizmo? Or any thoughts on how a Pymt project could talk to (yeah, I know, bad boy) Flash?

  • Luke Brooks

    NUI Group is the best source, I'm currently in looking into building my second multitouch table for VJing and midi use. NUI Group has all the information.

  • Tim Reha

    Love to hook up with anyone in Portland, Seattle or Vancouver B.C. areas who are developing touch interfaces for Vjing or other creative uses.

    Ping me. TimReha at G mail
