Wow... I was thinking "OK, he's made a big screen, he's drawn a calibration grid, now.. oh that's clever, using lighter sparks to make light flashes, but there's a huge paper screen hanging in his room, wait... he's taking it down, of course THE CAMERA WORKS WITHOUT THE PAPER SCREEN HOW DID I NOT THINK OF THAT OH EMM GEE" Is there an easy way to control clicks with touchlib? Like, if the camera only sees one point of light it is moving the mouse, but if it sees two then it makes a click at the location of the first? If there is a solution that simple, I am going straight to Argos, getting a webcam and building one of these. I have a great idea for a light pen as well...

hi PKM , touchlib is multipoint ... Have a look at the NUIgroup/forum, you will find a multimouse driver . Enjoy !

Left-click: place first finger as cursor and tap second finger to the left of it

This is what I was looking for. As soon as I am done re-installing Windows I will have to get a webcam and play with this. Do you know off the top of your head whether it works with x64 or Linux?

This is awesome! I followed it exactly and it worked like a charm. I have a few quesions, though. what camera do you use? Mine is a bit choppy. Also, do you know of a way to control the mouse clicks? I can move the mouse, but clicking is an issue. Thanks.

@ L.ARiley, glad it works for you ! send some pics ! Check the nuigroup forum, there is a new mouse driver online . I will put online asap some dedicated software . @Firebert, this setup is using a normal camera . it's multi point, so as many blobs as seen by the camera . (WiiMOte is only 4). This setup should also works with a lighter and a wiimote since the infrared emitted by a lighter is pretty huge. Johnny Lee's works are great and very inspiring .

I've seen this stuff before, during a talk that I saw featuring the man who was credited with first coining this kind of tech using a Wii remote's infrared camera.
