Very Cool Multitouch Audio Table – AudioTouch OS

AudioTouch is an interactive multi-touch interface for computer music exploration and collaboration developed by Seth Sandler, an undergraduate student at the University of California, San Diego. The interface features audio based applications that make use of multiple users and simultaneous touch inputs on a single multi-touch screen.

A natural user interface where users can interact through gestures and movements, while directly manipulating musical objects, is a key aspect of the design; the goal is to be able to interact with the technology (specifically music based) in a natural way. Users can load, exit, and move musical applications using gestures as well as have a multiple applications operate within the same work environment.

The design is built into a table that hides all the hardware necessary for tracking multiple inputs as well as displaying visual feedback on the touch surface.
