Evoluce Win&I brings Kinect gesture controls to Windows 7

We've been looking at some pretty cool Kinect and Windows interactions for a while now, but we were hoping that the release of an official SDK would lead to even more coolness. Evoluce has stepped up, and is now offering Win&I -- a full-featured gesture control system for Windows 7. The company claims that a range of up to four meters is supported, which should be perfect for just...

Flickr for Windows 7 tablets and Windows Phone 7 officially introduced

Originally unveiled back in January, Flickr has now officially introduced its apps for Windows Phone 7 and Windows 7 tablets. You'll find the Flickr WP7 app in the Zune Marketplace, while its tablet-friendly cousin is downloadable from this page (Silverlight required). Both apps provide a slick interface for browsing and searching Flickr, and they also provide a nice way to upload and manage...

Windows 8 tablet demo scheduled for June?

Citing a "source at Microsoft," Silicon Alley Insider is reporting that Microsoft plans on showing off Windows 8 in just a few short months. Insider's Matt Rosoff notes that Microsoft's fiscal year wraps up in June, so it just might make sense to demo the upcoming OS on a tablet to whet investor appetites for the coming year. As WinRumors points out, that's also right around the time of the All...

Touchégg assigns actions to multitouch gestures on your Linux system

Canonical demonstrated Ubuntu 10.10's multitouch functionality a few months back. If you haven't felt compelled to play with it before, a new app called Touchégg might provide a little extra incentive. It's an open source project which lets you define custom actions and execute them with a touch gesture. Canonical's uTouch gesture library is required, but it should already be installed if...

Touch Test for Android lets you test how accurate your touchscreen is

I suspected that the touchscreen on my Acer Liquid E was slightly out of sync; whenever I tried to hit Space in portrait mode, I missed and ended up exiting the application, or something weird like that happened. Touch Test is a simple, free application that allowed me to confirm my suspicions. Using Touch Test, I was able to verify that when I touched the bottom of the screen, it actually...

Touch the Bubbles is a frantic, fun Time Waster

As far as concepts go, Touch the Bubbles is dead simple: use your mouse to move the cursor around and smash all the colorful bubbles into nothingness. Piece of cake. Things get a little trickier, however, once the play area starts to evolve. Glowing red hotspots will kill you, and you're going to have to navigate through quite a few of them as you progress through the game. They're not just...

Microsoft's "Manual Deskterity" input concept a perfect fit for Courier

There's been plenty of talk about Microsoft's slick, dual-screen Courier tablet (check out Engadget's coverage of the device). While we still don't know when it's going to appear on retail shelves, it's safe to say that the touch-plus-pen input system demonstrated in the video above would be awesome on the Courier. "Manual Deskterity" aims to meld pen and multi-touch input into a more "real"...

TeamViewer releases iPhone remote support app, and it rocks

TeamViewer has always been a great, no-fuss way to connect to remote computer systems. With the (sort-of) recently added presentation features, voice and video chat, and improved window sharing options, version 5 of the desktop app is the best release so far. And now -- despite what my pal Constantin at TeamViewer told me a bit over a year ago -- they've launched an iPhone app [iTunes web...

Logitech's free Touch Mouse app turns your iPhone or iPod touch into a keyboard and trackpad for your computer

Touch Mouse [iTunes link] is a free iPhone / iPod Touch application from Logitech that turns your iDevice into a wireless keyboard and trackpad for your Windows or Macintosh computer. It's not a remote control application, so you don't get a view of the computer's screen; you simply get an alternative way to control the mouse pointer and keyboard. Touch Mouse works by relying on a small server...

Google Chrome tablet UI begins taking shape in Chromium nightly builds

Google's user interface mockups and YouTube video were a hot topic the other day, and that buzz will likely continue until we finally see a tablet device emerge from Mountain View to accompany the Nexus One. If the images and video weren't enough proof for you, changes are under way in the Chromium source code which certainly make it look like Google is getting serious about a new interface...
