Touchless SDK

Some days ago, Microsoft released a SDK called Touchless to develop multitouch-alike applications but instead of using a touch-screen you can use your webcam and colored markers!

They made a nice demo video showing the new technology! (The two guys are talking crap for the first minute, but then they show whats possible with the sdk...great!)

Watch the video here!

Did you check out touchlib at www.nuigroup.com and Camspace at www.camspace.com, those are pretty neat too.

Cute! The C# bits build with Mono.

The C++ code needs porting to a Linux API to support webcams.
