Sennheiser Mobile MusicOctober, 2009

We just finished our first multitouch device, codename: Cyclon! It is an optical system (not capacitive like the iPhone), which is based on infrared LEDs and a video projector and measures a total of about 2 * 2 * 1.5 meters. Touching is strongly welcome!http://www.instructables.com/
Mousse-T WebsiteAugust, 2009
For the new Mousse-T website, we integrated our tellMe system: a gateway between Flash (ActionScript 3) and PHP. tellMe is based on AMF (Action Message Format) and enabled us to build a system that allows users to record a video message on the page, save it in a gallery and send it to a friend. tellMe was used for nearly all projects which implied a strong backend for the Flash frontend.http://www.mousse-t.com/
