Longing for multi-touch on your computer? Use your S60 device

As I was checking Nokia Conversations today, I saw that their video of the day was titled 'Multitouch surface with N95 as a webcam'. Intrigued, I clicked through to the YouTube video.

As you can see in the above video, it's possible with the help of Mobiola Webcam to use your N95 or other camera equipped S60 device as the webcam needed for the home-made Multi-touch pad.

I'm planning to create a set up like this but instead of using the USB, I'll be using bluetooth to create a wireless touchpad. I'll post a video up here when I'm done, stay tuned!

Instructions for the build can be found here.

    I am using Mobiola Web Camera 2 for S60 3rd Edition to bluetooth my n95 as a webcam.

    However with the multi touch software, it is unable to pick up the webcam. I was to use my normal webcam without any problems.

    The idea is quite interesting - but to use it in every day life - that's a different story...

    It did make for an interesting afternoon!
