Abstract

We present PocketTable, a generic framework for sending multi-touch events from external controllers to tabletop applications. Our system supports the development of multi-touch applications in a mobile context if no table hardware is available. Since PocketTable represents an abstraction layer between the device and the software, external devices can be interchanged without recompiling the code of the application.
