By Todd Greco As interaction designers, we've been trained from day one how to deal with single point interactions (ie, the mouse pointer). With the iPhone, Surface, and a variety of other products out there, we're all being pulled to design for multitouch applications. That said, there are very few out of the box testing platforms out there that we can learn on (Surface costs $17k, for instance).
Frustrated by this, at FashionBuddha we built our own for under a grand. Actually, we've built two at this point, and should have more by the time ignite comes around. In addition, we created some small diy test boxes that cost under $30 for development.
In my five minutes, I'll talk about how we built them, the tech behind them and the diy process we used, and, more importantly, what we did with the tables once we got them running. So, consider it a two part presentation -- how to build a table, and, then, how to use Flash and reconsider how one designs for this new space.
