This post is a chronicle of how I built a cheap multi-touch by consulting Howto guide of MTMini. Just for fun.


A. Download and Install Required Applications for MTMini (Dec. 23, 2009)



  • Unzip the file at a desired location. I unzipped it at d:\download.
  • Go to “d:\download\CCV-1.2-win-bin\CCV-1.2-win-bin\Community Core Vision\” and run “Community Core Vision.exe”.
  • At the first time, CCV runs with a default video file.
