Open Source Multitouch surfaces with Arduino




As you may know, most touch companies (except for camera-based multi-touch companies) are prefer super-closed business strategy. They never even reveal data sheets or sell samples unless large amount of volume order is guaranteed.
So, here I offer OpenMT: an Open Source MultiTouch development platform. It’s the collection of open source hardwares and softwares for anyone to make his/her own thin and flexible multi-touch panel.
The OpenMT project is at the planning stage. Documentation is not complete yet, but after the first release, you will be able to make a 8×8 multitouch trackpad.
