So, I'm working on developing this fancy little engine for controlling musical loops through a multi-touch interface. We're building our own touch screen, but that won't be ready for about 6 months. In the mean time, I have an ipad as a test platform.
I'm trying to figure out how to get touch information from the ipad to another computer. I'll be writing my software in java, and I plan on running it in both Windows and OSX. But I need to be able to get touch points from the ipad. It is important to note that I'm NOT trying to make an ipad app, although I may need to make one that just observes touches, and passes them to the desktop. Anyone have any clues on this? I just want my code to be able to real the ipads touch points in real time. But I haven't managed to find any libraries to allow java code to make api calls to the ipad. I've done work with using wii remotes on a pc in java before, but I found some really useful libraries to make that job much easier.
