We name this YetAnotherMultitouchTable a.k.a YAMT 🙂 , this is the first prototype of our final year project, We did this in roughly 10 days ( and nights). The time constraint was mainly because of the fact we had a major event being conducted in our college and we wanted to showcase the possibilities of homebrew multi-touch surface computers. Thanks to nuigroup, we were able to complete the setup on time.
The response at the event was awesome, we could hear people looking and awing, professors and students enjoyed the gesture based photo manipulation. The chief guest, Mr. V. V. Srinivasan, scientist from ISRO congratulated us for achieving the feat, he looked into the innards of the system, he seemed to look quite impressed, to sum it up, the presentation was really good, cant wait to build the final product, with our own software.
PS: This is supposedly the Third Multi-touch Table from INDIA, he he
