As part of my diploma thesis under David Holman, I want to investigate the behavior of people using a multi-touch table.
I've heavily modified Pingus, an open-source clone of Lemmings, to make it appear similar to a table top game that reacts to gestural input. Multiple users can operate it at the same time.

The thesis is done! See attached file.

Recently, I was at a workshop in Munster where people from many different universities and industry representatives came together to talk about the possibilities of FTIR technology. I've written a short workshop report.
