Touchless and Windows 7 Multi Touch

Is it possible to hook into any of the Windows 7 multi touch gestures/etc with the Touchless SDK?

Thank you!

There was talk about this sometime ago in the MultiTouch Vista project.

Their project includes plugin architecture for touch input providers so possibly one could implement one using Touchless SDK.

On the other hand there is a Windows 7 driver to map these input providers to work in Windows 7.
I wrote about seting up this driver on my blog:

Hope this helps,

Yesterday I started with Toucless and MultiTouch Vista and I managed to create a Touchless-plugin for MultiTouch Vista. Too bad my camera is very slow, so it wasn't very usable, but I will go out to get a better cam.
There's also a lot more work to do on the plugin, because now it's actually just the two programs tied together: you have to create markers with the Touchless Demo, save them and MultiTouch Vista opens them to use.

But I was able to move my mouse in Windows 7 without touching anything, so it's a start!

Kind regards,

I am really interested in this idea, I could see it turning any display into interactive multi-touch. Maybe an even better program could send TUIO messages and objects.

Hey Amselfort, Could you share your Touchless InputProvider for Multi-Touch Vista? Please send the code to me or upload a patch and let me know. Thanks, - Mike
