Multi-Touch....

Postby RedRage » 11/29/10, 7:11 pm

Just ordered my multi-touch monitor, now i need to find some cool and maybe some useful ones too.

Anyone have any?

LCARSx32 looks like it would be awesome. but a bit clunky

YHTK just watch the second video (scroll down)... damn neet but don't think i wana use it that way.

Here is a small list too but nothing exciting

of course google earth and stuff would fun to play with...

anyone got anything else fun/useful?

too bad there isn't a gnome ui for that

I tried one of those a while back (very, very briefly, on the store shelf), and it seemed very inconvenient, having to reach out to the monitor to perform actions.... Where am I missing it, Red?

I was thinking bout putting it by my bed... alarm clock and media station... for those days i just don't wana get out of bed.. now i won't have to... well to pee and get coffee :-)

I just don't like using a laptop in bed and i don't have a spot for a mouse really to work.. optical doesn't work well on sheets.

i played with the staples ones.. HP i think... they worked but kinda where a pain and where not multi-touch. Most of the problem was the computers themselves lacked the power to really push it so they where a little slow.

It will also be handy when i'm using it when i'm play'n music as i'm usually standing when play'n guitar and tapping the screen will be easier than a mouse among many other things (including the geek factor).

How do you mean? Are you saying there is no multitouch capablilities in Gnome, because I remember seeing videos a few years ago which seemed to suggest different?

I think he was referring to the LCARS interface
