Google Maps Multi-touch App

I’ve built a small Google Maps multi-touch app with Flex and Flash over the last days:

It uses the Google Maps Flash API and the TUIO Actionscript classes and the Touchlib from the Nuigroup.

The red stuff on the screen means that i am using the debug mode of Google Maps for Flash. That is because I execute the Flash file on my local computer. The problem is: For TUIO I need to connect to a local socket. Actually I don’t know how to access a local socket server with a Flash app that opens up in my browser on a remote site (and if this was possible it would scare the hell out of me). Seems like I need to live with the red stuff…

Maybe someone has wondered why I only use the view with satellite pictures. It is also possible to have the maps view but by the time I produced that video the maps servers were offline for a day.
