Featured Touchless Users and Community Members

Community Member Lucian Wischik

Lucian is a developer for Microsoft in Visual Studio Managed Languages. He created an extremely fun and unique game using Touchless SDK called "Stay In the Game". His game is written in Visual Basic and soon to be featured on Channel9 (I'll have the link for you soon). Beyond encouraging violence* through the highly physical gameplay of "Stay In The Game"; Lucian also put together a simple VB sample for Touchless SDK. Both projects will soon be hosted here, but for now, visit his MSDN Code Gallery page to scoop up his awesome projects.
*Of course we don't encourage violence :-)

Community Member Papnkukn

Papnkukn developed several cool projects using Touchless [projects and videos|http://www.papnkukn.net/touchless]. TouchlessWPF is a very cool and simple WPF interface to Touchless. TouchlessKnight is a marker/mouse powered game that puts you in the seat of the Knight's Tour Problem. TouchlessCircuit lets you design circuits by manipulating individual elements with a marker/mouse. TouchlessCanvas is a general WPF component that simplifies WPF development with Touchless.

jimbasset, I've been using the Microsoft LifeCam's and they've worked well. I've also heard things about Logitech's QuickCam Pro series. Touchless only supports 320x240, but will likely soon support 640x480.

What would be the better webcams to use. I saw reviews of the VXs that had them low, would LogiTechs be better especially for high resolution use?
