DIY your own MultiTouch Screen

Ever since we got our fingers on the iPhone, we've been fascinated by multitouch. Why couldn't everything be so physically interactive?

This video by Multitouch-Barcelona made our love for multitouch even stronger. It's beautiful, yet wildly practical.

Ever since we got our fingers on the iPhone, we've been fascinated by multitouch. Why couldn't everything be so physically interactive?

This video by Multitouch-Barcelona made our love for multitouch even stronger. It's beautiful, yet wildly practical.

So, to get our fix of interactivity let's build one ourselves.

This next DIY is thorough, thus long. But, it's totally worth the ride. Sum cost: only $50. The programming possibilities are endless. Use it as a music controller or a desktop interface. Thanks to creator Seth Sandler, an undergrad at UC San Diego. He created his 'MT Mini' for music. Great job, Seth!
