#WiiTUIO Ever wanted to use a Wiimote to get multi-touch on your Windows 7 PC? WiiTUIO might just be what you're looking for. If you would like some instructions there is a good guide here (along with a few handy scripts to automate things)

WiiTUIO improves the stability of the IR sources captured by the Wiimote using some thresholds and spatio-temporal classification. The application can generate native Windows 7 touch events as well as TUIO messages from the stabilised data.

Each raw IR source captured by the Wiimote is either assigned to the best existing tracked source or generates a new tracker. This means that the touch events can be generated from stable data without the jitter (namely, false-positives generated between two IR sources and the unordered source buffer) that occurs when trying to use the Wiimote to capture true multi-touch IR.

Created as part of the CoffeeTable project. Find out more here:

  1. Windows 7 is required in order to use generate touch events.
  2. The UniSoftHID driver used with MultiTouchVista. The code to support touch events is based on (Multitouch.Driver.Logic) by Nesher. As such, I reccomend that you use the whole 'MultiTouchVista' package for better support. The UniSoftHID driver can be found bundled with 'MultiTouchVista' here:
