For 6.810 Engineering Interactive Technologies, I built a multitouch touchpad music player.
01 Mulitouch Touchpad
Touch Touch Play offers a more natural way to engage with music.
Just use your fingers to pause or play, skip to the previous or next song, and change the volume.
I designed and laser cut the acryllic, bent it into the touchpad shape, and wired in LEDs with a USB cable and a on/off switch.
I used OpenCV to track finger movements through the camera at the base of the touchpad, and wrote the algorithms to detect different gestures and adapt the music player accordingly.
