Open Source Multitouch Surface
Just found this on Slashdot:
Technology Review: Open-Source, Multitouch Display
"Engineers at Eyebeam, an art and technology center based in New York, have created a scaled-down open-source version of Surface, called Cubit. By sharing the Cubit's hardware schematics and software source code, the engineers are significantly reducing the cost of owning a multitouch table.
Looks like it is in its early stages but it could create some interesting possibilities if this technology became cheaper and easier to develop for. It looks like they are selling kits to make these prototype models for between $500 and $1000USD
Here is the actual project site:
