Microsoft Releases, Removes, & Re-Releases Touch Mouse Sensor API

When Microsoft released the Touch Mouse Sensor API in August, it was surprising when it was removed a month later.

While, I have no idea why it was removed, the Microsoft Research Lab has restored the Microsoft Touch Mouse Sensor API.

Touch Mouse Sensor API The Microsoft Touch Mouse supports multitouch gestures via an integrated sensor. The Touch Mouse Sensor API SDK is a small library intended to enable students and researchers to experiment directly with Touch Mouse sensor output.

Using this SDK, you can create your own applications consuming the 13×15 sensor image. The SDK includes C# and C++ samples demonstrating how to read and manipulate sensor data.

NOTES: To use this SDK, you need Windows 7, Visual Studio 2008 or Visual Studio 2010, and a Microsoft Touch Mouse. This SDK is provided for research and educational purposes only and is not intended for commercial use.
