Problems installing Mac OS X Yosemite 10.10 Virtual Machine in Parallels 10 – No Recovery Partition

I’ve came across the problem that i cannot create a new virtual machine of Mac OS X Yosemite 10.10 on my new Mac Mini. The problem I experience is that there is no option on the install screen prompting me to »Install OS X Using the Recovery Partition«. The screenshot below shows this option.

Mac OS X Multi-touch Tracking Software Touché

I just wanted to mention the great Open Source multi-touch tracking application Touché for Mac OS X from Georg Kaindl in my blog.

Touché supports lots of image processing possibilities and is written purely in the Cocoa Objective-C framework from Apple. The Touché code can be accessed via Google Code. Touché supports loads of video cameras amongst others the Pointgrey Firefly MV.

Touché produces TUIO OSC messages and also the TUIO XML analog for Flash rendering FLOSC unnecessary.

As far as I have seen and tested Touché it has a slightly bigger latency than the Touchlib with an appropriate Touchlib configuration.

However, Touché seems to be the best choice for everyone, who wants to use Mac OS X for the tracking in multi-touch setups. It is highly cofigurable. Georg Kaindl is developing Touché on his own. Thus, there is only one responsible, friendly and very capable programmer that can be easily contacted.

The discussion about Touché in the NUI group can be found here.

Finally, here is a video of Georg Kindl showing Touché on Vimeo:

There are more videos of Touché available.
