Touchlib Config.xml Blobconfig Parameters, What They Do and What They Do not Do

Recently, I have been working on the Touchlib in order to refine some things, which always bothered me and to add some things of which I think that they would come in handy e.g. a full-grown Pointgrey Flycapture2 filter that allows me to edit the Pointgrey Firefly MV camera’s settings in a way that I described here.

After being able to compile the Touchlib I quickly grew curious about what all those blobconfig parameters in the Touchlib’s config.xml REALLY do.

How to Compile the Touchlib

Actually, I have not configured the compilation of the Touchlib on my own, yet. But I have heard that it should be a hell of complicated. As I came upon the website of the original author of the Touchlib in which he gives a lot of hints, I wanted to post his page here: How to Compile the Touchlib.

The Multi-Touch Table Virttable [Update]

The second multi-touch table, that I have built is called The Virttable, which stands for Versatile Illumination Research Touch Table.

This table is the property of the department for Design, Computer Science and Media (DCSM) of the Wiesbaden University of Applied Sciences, which provided me with the money for the components of the Virttable. (Actually, we had student fees for a short time in Hessen/Germany. From a part of these student fees the Virttable has been built. Thank you, dear students!!! There’s no cent of public money in the Virttable.) Amongst others those parts include:

The computer that I have used in the Virttable is my Mac Mini.
