Touch+ is a small and sleek bar that turns any surface into multitouch. Touch+ contains two normal cameras that “see” your hands like the human eyes do, tracking their positions with advanced computer vision algorithms. It is the first affordable 3D tracking device that allows you to tap, swipe, or zoom on any surface while seeing your fingers on the screen. What can you do with it?

We will be cranking out updates to keep improving Touch+ by leaps and bounds!
Windows and OSX. Linux support will be added soon!
