Touchless is a fun and very cool release available from Office Labs – all you need is a webcam and some objects to use as pointers/markers…

check it out.


Touchless enables touch without touching by using a webcam to track color based markers. Touchless includes two parts:

  • Touchless Demo is an open source application that anyone with a webcam can use to experience multi-touch, no geekiness required. There are 4 fun demos: Snake - where you control a snake with a marker, Defender - up to 4 player version of a pong-like game, Map - where you can rotate, zoom, and move a map using 2 markers, and Draw - the marker is used to guess what....  draw!
  • Touchless SDK is an open source SDK that enables developers to create multi-touch based applications using a webcam for input, geekiness recommended.
