Touch Control System (TCS) is a general purpose, 3D, Multi-Touch All-Points capable touch control system that utilizes the very latest in hardware technologies to deliver a unique presentation platform where you can interact with and manipulate physical hardware and software creations of your own.
The possibilities really are endless. From Do-It-Yourself projects based on the line of Arduino boards, to art projects, kiosk systems, home automation, and amazing marine and automotive applications, TCS is the perfect fit for your next project.
TCS gives you on-screen, customizable, 3D controls that can be wired up any way you choose. Control a robot or your house lighting. Display the temperature outside while you remotely start your car. TCS can work as a server with clients, giving you centralized control of users, hardware, installed Modules, screens, controls, and environment settings.
From our web application, and from within TCS itself, you can download additional Modules, full of buttons, controls, gauges, sounds, and background scenery that you can interact with. You can move content between installations freely, and without DRM.
You can even add your own original art and functionality to TCS. The education section of our website shows you, step by step, how to create your own Modules, complete with 3D content, special effects, scripts, images, and sounds. TCS allows you to merge your imagination with a plane of the future only seen in science fiction TV shows and movies.
In addition to 3D particle and sprite effects, TCS allows you to use multiple animation systems, simultaneously. It also has the ability to include custom shader code (HLSL) with your 3D models. This gives you the final say in how your models are rendered. Give your controls a unique style by adding fur, cartoon shading, or implement your own methods of light reflection.
Focusing on education and community involvement, the TCS web portal has forums, tutorials, and downloadable source code examples that show you how to interact with various control boards, programming languages, and mobile computing environments. The TCS web portal also has a large library of shaders for you to use, and tutorials are available that will help you learn how they work and how to create them from scratch.
Start with the built-in standard support for touch screens, keyboard/mouse, Xbox controllers, and expand your world with accelerometers, cameras, and other input sensors to give a truly immersive and interactive experience only available with Touch Control System.
This video shows (sorry, no audio) vertex interpolation using 3 sets of geometry with percentages pulled from audio data. Using interpolation, you can create models that completely change shape or build facial expressions into animated characters. Visit us at HyperplaneInteractive.com for more!
