TUIO software newsAugust 11

There have been several interesting new additions to the TUIO software collection during the past weeks. First of all researchers at the University of Konstanz created the Surface-To-Tuio bridge, which implements a TUIO object and cursor source for the Microsoft Surface.This allows to directly use a growing collection of open source software on this commercial platform. Another interesting innovation is MultiPointer TUIO, which uses several mice to simulate multi-touch via TUIO on Windows. And two independent projects added browser support using different approaches, PookyTouch is a Firefox/XUL extension, while npTuioClient provides a browser plugin.
