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.

    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?

    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. http://nuigroup.com/forums/viewthread/4750/

    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
