Jfish Posted February 16, 2010 Share Posted February 16, 2010 All: Warning: you will need to invest $4.99 on iTunes to try this if you are interested. I am not associated in any way with the application - I just think it is cool. I recently got an iTouch (the non-phone version of the iPhone) and I came across an application called touchOSC (http://hexler.net/software/touchosc) that allows you to design your own controls in windows (with an albeit functional but buggy UI) and synch them to the device (you download this directly from their website). The controls are very cool looking, see the website for some examples. All the controls communicate over a wi-fi network using a standard called Open Sound Control (http://opensoundcontrol.org/). These controls all send float values between 0 and 1. The controls are mainly used in MIDI sound applications. If you go to you youtube you can see examples (http://www.youtube.com/results?search_query=touchOSC&search_type=&aq=f). You can also use the UI to send signals to electronic devices (http://www.sparkfun.com/commerce/tutorial_info.php?tutorials_id=152). This example code is a UDP listener for the iTouch application that will display the names of the controls and the values on the edit screen. Once you capture this information you can create an AutoIt remote control for just about anything: launch applications, turn volume up and down on your computer (I did this), make an iTouch mouse (I did this too). There are many possibilities. Let me know if you try it. Enjoy. -JFish INSTRUCTIONS: 1. Open touchOSC on your iPhone or iTouch. Go to the network settings. Type in the network address of your host computer (running this AutoIt app). Outgoing port should be set to 8000. Incoming port should be sent to 9000. 2. Start the attached AutoIt code. 3. Go to any layout in touchOSC (i.e. the controls) either the ones that came with the device or a layout you made with the editor. 4. Play around with the controls and see the results on the screen.UDPServer2_w_GUI_Final_withXY.au3 Build your own poker game with AutoIt: pokerlogic.au3 | Learn To Program Using FREE Tools with AutoIt Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
