Regarding the blocks, rather than using the folded boxes filled with lentils you can transform any objects of comparable size (walnuts, hazelnuts, chocolates.. ) into interactive objects by attaching to them the printed d-touch markers! Please send us photo- and video-reports of your constructions and we'll publish them on the site!
If the problems persist, please contact us on through the forum.
From people reports it seems that upgrading the driver may help (latest quickcam version is 11.90.x from http://www.logitech.com/index.cfm/support_downloads/&cl=us,en )
Other fixes we found (but not tested) include:
1- Uninstall logitech webcam 2- Go to microsoft.com 3- Under popular downloads 4- Select DirectX (should be 9.0c) 5- Download program (dxwebsetup.exe) 6 - Reboot 7- Install logitech webcam software
Another solution: Install the webcam in UVC mode (without the logitech drivers, Usb Video Class device)
1) Uninstall QuickCam. 2) Reboot. 3) Plug in the camera. 4) Windows will automatically install the generic Microsoft UVC drivers. • For Vista, do not alllow the PC to use Windows Update to search for drivers.
If someone has a chance to give these methods a try, please let us know by posting on the forum. Thanks!
Q: What is the difference between the two types of markers? What are those suppose to represent anyway?A: The markers are supposed to represent: (1) a hand hitting a surface and producing a little music note! and (2) two hands hitting a surface. One hand = normal hit, two hands = louder hit.
The other parts of the software, including the audio applications, are not open source. This is because we remotely log their usage as part of our research.
Unfortunately, we do not currently have any open funded positions.
However, if you are a student in Southampton or in an other university (provided there is an exchange programme) you may be able to work on d-touch through your BEng/MEng/MSc project or through an internship.
Moreover, you are free to use d-touch in your own projets (see libdtouch)
