Wednesday, 5 November, 2008 § 7 Comments
Well during the past 2 months i’ve been working with as a consultant at a local Canadian company, Globacore, and with them i was involved in the process of creating a 10m x 1.5m Multitouch wall. My Job entailed designing of the hardware and creating some of the underlying multi-touch software.
Graphics, visual design, backed server programming and database coding were done in house, by the excellent team at Globacore. The setup was based on the LLP technique, where i used 850nm 10mW lasers. Each screen i.e. 72″ diagonal unit used 8 of these lasers. My IR Camera of prefrence was the point grey firefly mv, mainly because of the high frame rate capablities it can achieve. The tracking was done in touchlib on windows xp. The OS/Application was built in AS3 and Flash CS3.
