Re: Hello from Portland, OR

Thanks for the blog link! That looks very promising, and easier than creating an image, but it begins on a computer that already has the FingerWorks Utilities installed in /Applications/FingerWorks. I found the Mac_setupfw160.zip file in the Downloads section, but that unpacks into a Classic Mac OS ...

Re: Hello from Portland, OR

It so happens that I am a Java programmer by trade. I don't work with USB or keyboards or anything like that, but if we can identify the structure of the software then I can try to just straight up call a Main class. We can decompile the code and try to modify it if needed, too. I haven't really spe...

Re: A collection of three TouchStreams for sale

The TouchStreams originally retailed for $350 right? I sold mine in 2009 for $500. It may be that the value has continued to increase, and you could get $600 per, or it may be that the platform is too bitrotten to be useful these days, what with the software not even running on modern operating syst...

Re: Hello from Portland, OR

I've been through the forums and I saw the discussion about how to bootstrap the Java Application, and the other discussion about using a virtual machine. Thank you. Those are both daunting possibilities, I'd be equally likely to try to track down simply an old computer and try to use it. I figured ...

Re: and another Kickstarter project with promise

(I'm having fun reading ancient threads on this forum.) Update on this Haptix product: they delivered hardware which people deemed quality, but the software never worked. Even now, four years later, the Kickstarter page has comments from people looking for software that could make the hardware work ...

Re: Hello from Portland, OR

It's so nice to have a couple voices out there responding. This forum doesn't have a section for projects so I'll just use my own member intro thread to put up my ideas and ask questions. I'm a computer professional and recently, as a mixture of hobby and professional development, I've been actively...

Re: A collection of three TouchStreams for sale

Did you have any takers here? eBay might still be your best bet. I've had a "FingerWorks" watch there for many years.

Hello from Portland, OR

I owned a TouchStream back when they were actively produced and have never forgotten how much better its gestures were than anything that we've seen since then. This week I bought an iGesturePad on eBay. I'm crossing my fingers that it fully works and if so I'll put it next to my ErgoDox keyboard an...
