Multi-Touch with 3D on Nasa World Wind

We developed a multi-touch version of Nasa World Wind on a 7.9 x 6.2 feet tall FTIR (frustrated total internal reflection) based multi-touch wall. This implementation is based on the Nasa World Wind Java SDK and a multi-touch tracking library developed within the Project: Multitouch at the Deutsche Telekom AG Laboratories, which is part of the TU Berlin, Germany. The FTIR multi-touch wall was built from the scratch during a workshop on FTIR multi-touch surfaces in Münster, Germany. All the software is written entirely in Java and the interaction will be hopefully available as an open source project. Please visit the site in a couple of weeks again. Of course, the Java Nasa World Wind SDK and the Deutsche Telekom Labs Multitouch tracking lib are certainly available as open source projects. - Nasa World Wind
