Today we took the MT55 Pro back to the future. A few clients asked about our multitouch table’s compatibility with the antiquated OS, so we shot a quick proof of concept video. Why anyone would want to run a touch based version of Windows XP is beyond me (Hello, McFly; no multi-touch gestures?!).
As it turns out, you can use single touch and drag throughout the Windows XP environment. Unfortunately, right click, click and hold, and all the fancy gestures Microsoft built into Windows 7 are lost. If you plan to use XP (or have a legacy exhibit to retrofit) you can unlock all of the MT55 Pro’s multitouch gestures with GestureWorks and TUIO.
