Multitouch external for MaxMSP

The trackpad on the late MacBooks can track up to 10 or more (!) fingers at once. Fingerpinger is an external object for MaxMSP that we wrote around code from This is an experimental hack. No guarantee it will work on future OS versions. But its fun and its free…

Update: Works with the Magic Trackpad, too!


TrackPadSynth is a simple but fun example of what you can do with fingerpinger. It’s a standalone version, you don’t need MaxMSP to try it out…

AVR-Toolchain Installer Package for MacOSX

As outlined in the article Programming ATMEL microprocessors on a Mac, installing the AVR toolchain on the Mac can be a long and tedious procedure. Downloading, compiling and installing all the stuff can take up to 6 hours!

Now I wrapped the whole thing into a nice installer package, see below.

Installation time: < 5min.
And the best part: you don't even need the Apple Developer Tools anymore (1.85 Gig !)
