Video of the OHSW presentation

I have finally managed to upload the video of my presentation at the Open Hard & Software Workshop.

Have fun:

First day at Open Hard- and Software Workshop in Munich

Yesterday was the first day of two of the Open Hard- and Software Workshop (  in Munich. My first reason to attend it, was to meet the guys from the GTA04 project again. But now I am presentating my LCD Multitouch table there.

The day started with a presentation of Nikolaus Schaller about the status of the GTA04 project.

After him,  I had my presentation. You find the slides here: OHSW Präsentation MultiTouch Couch Tisch.

There will be also a video of it, but I didn’t looked at it to see how good it is.  If it is ok, I will upload it to Youtube.
At the afternoon, we also saw a presentation about SHR, the programming language Vala  and an extension board for the Freerunner for RFID/NFC.

In the evening we sat together and had nice chats about various open source topics.

Let’s have a look, what the second day will bring.

Windows 8 on multi touch coffee table

Last wednesday Microsoft published a developer preview of Windows 8. You can get it here.

After trying it out on my Acer 1825PTZ  I decided to put it on my self build multi touch coffee table.

4 hours installing and configuring CCV and Bsqsimulator I got it running. And I was impressed.
The new metro ui works perfect at touchscreens. I couldn’t really stop sitting at the table and “touching” everything.

I plan to do some videos in the next week to show a little bit more, than this one screenshot.

When you see the stuff in live action, you know why I definitely want something like that on the Linux desktop!
