Project Info

Created this application to showcase interaction models within the touch screen LCD that is part of a keyboard. The application allows the user to control desktop applications such as Windows Explorer, Microsoft Life Messenger, and music player with finger gestures. I worked collaboratively with a team of Designers, Researchers, PMs. It was an innovative concept for the time. We needed to build a fairly complex flash based prototype that enables a computer to communicate with a touch screen monitor and through the touching gestures initiate certain commands.
