Setting up BSQSimulator with CCV

I decided to compile the links and instructions for setting up BSQSimulator for my own future reference and to hopefully help others out. The directions are buried in the NUIGroup forums somewhere and can sometimes be difficult to find, with different versions requiring various MS Surface files. The files you’ll need: BSQSimulator2 (beta) direct download […]

DSI Multitouch construction – Part 8

In the never ending quest to get better blob tracking on my touch screen I decided to add more cameras. A few months ago I added a second camera but they didn’t quite cover the whole screen – there was about an inch gap in the centre of the screen. I didn’t want to use […]

Here is some more updated photos of the coffee table. I wanted to post some shots up before I head over to Japan in a few days. I managed to get it out of my bedroom and into the lounge for some better shots. Note that the top and sides are not the final. Currently […]
