Hey guys and gals,
I was doing some research on building my own Multi-touch Table for my new house. I had seen alot of great plans but still undecided on what type of design I want for the table. I began to think of the framework interface that windows had on the "Microsoft Surface" and thought "Thats pretty cool, I wonder if there is something like that for Ubuntu." .
So more searching began I found this website TouchLay where they say that they are desgining a Ubuntu based interface for a multi-touch surface. It seems interesting but I was more hoping that it was supported by Canonical in some way. My wife says to me later on "What if you go on tour again and when you come you dont feel like building it?" True enough question. So I did some more research on actual touch screens to put overtop my Samsung 40" TV and found this site. Multi-Touch-Screens interesting stuff and seems promising but I saw no Ubuntu or Linux support for the software. So I emailed the company to find out if in the future that they would eventually make support files for Linux, now I play the waiting game for a response.
I then decided to check out youtube as per and see what was out there for videos on what I was looking for. I then found a video about GINN which is supported by Canonical and has all the gestures that I needed. How is the interface with GINN is it easy to pick up? can you customise the gestures? will future versions of GINN have a new framework media center? So many questions. But all I know is that I will have a Multi-touch Table ....Oh yes , it will be mine.
