TUIOFX is a novel toolkit for developing multi-touch, multi-user applications for interactive tabletops and surfaces. By seamlessly integrating with JavaFX, TUIOFX provides a low entry barrier for developing state-of-the-art applications with multi-user, multi-touch capabilities and allows the cross-platform deployment on various interactive tabletop and surface hardware.
