Windows 7 Multi-touch – The Beginning

I was finally able to bring home the HP TouchSmart IQ816 to begin writing up demos on the Multi-Touch feature of Windows 7. It is a fantastic all-in-one machine with a beautiful 25 1/2” screen built using screen overlay technology developed by NextWindow (Which I will blogging about in a later post). In addition, this bad boy has an Intel Core 2 Duo T8100 processor 4GB Ram and 3/4 Terabytes of storage.   As you can see, it is such a large machine that I had to take over my dining room table to accommodate it.  Once I was able to get the correct NVidia drivers installed, we were ready to go. I will be posting videos of the coolness of this machine.  In addition, I will be doing a series on how you can use Visual Studio to write code against the multi-touch interface ( although you will find these on my development blog at http://www.DotNetDoc.com) .   Stay tuned for some cool video demonstrations of what you can do with this machine.
