This is great news from N-Trig, as they have just announced the availability of their software development kit (SDK) for creating multi-touch gestures. Hopefully, this will get us past the initial offering of gestures currently available and encourage development among forward-looking software developers.
N-trig, the provider of DuoSenseÃ¢â€žÂ¢ technology combining pen and zero-pressure touch for mobile and fixed computers into a single device, announced today that it is offering a software development kit (SDK) for multi-touch gestures to independent service vendors (ISVs) and industry partners. With its revolutionary approach to Hands-on computingÃ¢â€žÂ¢, N-trig’s SDK can be downloaded on any tablet PC with DuoSense technology.
The multi-touch gestures SDK enables ISVs to add multi-touch functions to current or future applications, providing a more hands-on experience for the user. N-trig’s multi-touch currently enables functions such as rotating, zooming in and out, panning, and pinching. However, this is only the beginning of multi-touch manipulation, and N-trig is continuing to develop its technology and will be releasing more multi-touch features in the future.
““True multi-touch functionality is the future for computing devices,Ã¢â‚¬Â said Amihai Ben-David, CEO of N-trig. ““By providing a platform that offers multi-touch gestures, we are giving ISVs an opportunity to develop new applications. Many major computer companies have recently announced multi-touch technology, and our SDK will enable even more advances in what people are able to do with their computing devices.Ã¢â‚¬Â
With its multi-touch gestures SDK, N-trig is setting the stage for ISVs to develop new and exciting technologies and encouraging them to develop applications for future platforms as well. N-trig is the only company that provides pen, touch, and multi-touch capabilities for tablet PCs, and its DuoSense digitizers support Microsoft’s Windows XP and Vista as well as future versions of Windows 7.
