Multitouch Interaction: Apr/2016

Video and photo documentation from the Multitouch Interaction 2016 course:


The course focuses on exploring multitouch interaction to create engaging experiences with digital media. Multiple devices will be used, with an emphasis on mobile phones/tablets and the iOS platform. Other devices and platforms will also be discussed.

The main development environment for the course will consist of openFrameworks (oF) with Xcode. Students should have previously attended the Software Studies for Media Designers course, or demonstrate having acquired equivalent skills. Students are required to plan, develop, document and present a project at the end of the course.
