A couple of years ago I happened upon a website dedicated to Multitouch called NUIGroup.com and a few weeks ago I happened to think about one of the simple projects that was posted on there. This project has been popular among the Multitouch users and hasn’t really spread outside of that circle except every once in a while, a site will post about it. So now it’s my turn to spread some of the knowledge.
This is a basic Do It Yourself project and at most once you have your supplies shouldn’t take no more than 30 minutes or so to complete.
A computer of course.
A webcam. My experience 99.9% of webcams will work.
Box; Cardboard, wooden box or any solid colored material.
Piece of glass/plexiglass to fit over the top of the box.
A piece of material such as printer paper that will fit over the glass.
Tape; Duct tape is a good choice but any good heavy duty tape will work.
Optional; Picture frame or something similar to cover the edges of the glass for looks more than any other purpose.
