As previously noticed on the blog, I’ve already built a prototype (with very very DIY look and components) of a multitouch table – using Tbeta as the vision software.
Community Core Vision or CCV for short (also known as tbeta), is a open source/cross-platform solution for computer vision and machine sensing.
It takes an video input stream and outputs tracking data (e.g. coordinates and blob size) and events (e.g. finger down, moved and released) that are used in building NUI aware applications.
CCV can interface with various web cameras and video devices as well as connect to various TUIO/OSC/XML enabled applications and supports many multi-touch lighting techniques including: FTIR, DI, DSI, and LLP with expansion planned for the future vision applications (custom modules/filters).
Software License: CCV is currently released under the GPL License however we are still considering alternatives that may be helpful in code reusablity and development such as LGPL, MIT or BSD.
