The Touchless SDK is an open source SDK for .NET applications. It enables developers to create multi-touch based applications using a webcam for input. Color based markers defined by the user are tracked and their information is published through events to clients of the SDK. In a nutshell, the Touchless SDK enables touch without touching.
However, I found that running the demo isn't quite straight forward. Here is what you need to do.
- Set up your web camera by selecting the camera you want to use in "Camera" page.
- Set up the markers. You need to use "Markers" which should be objects with bright colors such as tennis ball, a plastic toy. You need to get the web camera to see your marker and click "Add A New Marker" button. The image will be freeze and you need to mark area of your marker by click on the image and drag a circle around your marker. After that, the demo will be able to track your marker like this.
- Now, enjoy the demo! :)
For those who still cannot run the demo now, you can watch the video of demo program running here.
