This workshop will discuss the basic problems that arise during the development of multi-touch applications, mainly the problem of the simultaneity of inputs. Which one of the detected blobs belongs to an interaction can be tricky to figure out, multiple people doing different things at the same time can also be challenging.
After discussing the basic multi-touch paradigms we will present our approach of handling gestures, the MINT framework. Despite being still in beta phase, it is already capable of handling the well known gestures with the possibility of adding more complex behaviors by combining various elementary interaction building-blocks. We will create some simple 2d and 3d examples and try out some advanced interactions.
At the end of the workshop we would like to have a short discussion about feature requests and the general roadmap for the MINT development.
