A multi-user, multi-touch environment for controlling strategy games.

Fleet Commander is a technological experiment game that was developed at the Electronic Visualization Laboratory (EVL) by MS graduate candidate Arthur Nishimoto. It tries to explores how a real-time interactive strategy game that would typically rely on complex keyboard commands and mouse interactions be transferred into a multi-user, multi-touch environment. The game is being played on a 20 feet wide multi user touch screen, and is an open source project. check its impressive display below:
