Our commercial multitouch framework, GestureWorks 3 is now available. There are a lot of new features including the introduction of the Gesture Markup Language, the world’s first markup language for multitouch. GestureML allows developers to rapidly change gesture interaction even after an application has been built. This flexibility helps address challenges in the design process, as creating user interface for multitouch and multiuser applications is still a new endeavor.
GestureWorks 3 is completely rebuilt and we greatly improved the way the software analyzes gesture interaction. With GestureWorks 3, “objects” behave more like objects do in real world and the software can determine no only user touch points, but also their orientation. To demonstrate this new feature we developed a built-in gesture visualizer. Here’s a video of the gesture visualizer.
