CreoleTouchPad

Android app which sends touch coordinates to a PC and receives vibration intensities.

Why?

I make software that turns visual stuff into non-visual stuff. This application is designed to provide a simple way of using haptics (vibration) for some of that "other stuff".

For examples, check out the Polyglot Framework, which contains an example of a TouchPad receiver.

How it works

CreoleTouchPad opens a sockets server and waits for a PC to connect to it. PC app will usually connect over USB using the Android Debug Bridge (ADB) to forward a local port to the Android device. Sending coordinates and receiving vibration intensities then takes place over the sockets connection.

Credits

I use SocketTest to check that it's doing what I want it to.

You can’t perform that action at this time.
