Gaming on a 20 foot LCD MultiTouch Wall

If you are going to get your game on, you may as well do it on a LCD Multi-Touch Wall. The game is called Fleet Commander developed by Arthur Nishimoto in the Electronic Visualization Laboratory at the University of Illinois in Chicago. It is a real time strategy game adapted for a large interactive LCD Multi-Touch Wall. According to Nishimoto; “this game attempts to tackle many of the challenges of developing a multi-touch application in a tabletop environment. This includes orientation independent interfaces, multi-user interaction, and issuing multiple commands using only a multi-touch interface. Originally designed for use with TacTile, a 52-inch multi-touch LCD tabletop display, Fleet Commander is also being used to explore multi-user interaction on a 20-foot wide multi-touch LCD wall.”
