WallPad is a widget designed to quickly access remote content on wall displays while addressing legibility issues and supporting direct multi-touch interaction.
WallPad is a new widget we designed to ease multi-touch interaction on wall displays. It supports the creation of proxy views in an easy and elegant way to bring distant interface regions within arm’s reach. It is intended to help improving distant objects legibility through these views, ease switching between direct multi-touch interaction within them and indirect cursor-based interaction through them, and support fast and precise remote cursor manipulation.
The toolkit is written in C++ with Qt 5.3.

This wallpad project is composed of 3 sub-projects
- examples contains some sample UIs to test wallpads.
- teleTouch is a library which implements wallpad concept in Qt environment. Touch events are received through TUIO protocol thanks to another library: qTUIO.
- qTUIO is a library which implements a TUIO listener on a local UDP socket and forwards the events into the internal eventsystem of Qt.
