Multi-Touch Demo On The Nokia N900 Using Theremin
Theremin for Maemo 5 has just popped up in the Maemo Extras Repositories and brings with it some interesting food for thought. First of all, Theremin for Maemo is a virtual musical instrument application that you can use to emulate various different instruments in true Theremin form. You can change the sound, pitch and volume of each instrument as well as share and listen to other Theremin users. When playing the instruments, Theremin allows you to press up to two different notes at the same time, which is technically classed as multi-touch. But what’s exciting is that if this sort of multi-touch input is possible on the Nokia N900, other applications could potentially utilize this capability. Check out the video after the break and let us know what you think.
