Description MUSE is a framework for developing cost-affordable interactive environments. It allows for rapid development of interactive systems based on tabletops and interactive tiled-display walls. It also can serve as a testing environment for a development of new interaction approaches for large-scale interactive systems. The framework provides different interaction possibilities of multimodal user interfaces which are made of multiple low-cost commodity devices (e.g., single- and multi-touch overlay panels and foils, web cameras, depth sensors). The framework enables new research directions in exploring interaction methods in co-located group collaborative environments. Main features of the framework: a) coupling of multiple low-cost commodity multi-touch sensors which are represented as a single seamless interface; b) association of touch events with particular users; c) functions for distinguishing and continuous association of users and touch operations they performed; d) hand-tracking for identification and distinguishing users' body parts (e.g., hands) used in association with touch input events; e) extended semantic description of input events enabling their personalisation (e.g., personalized gesture recognition); f) highly configurable toolkit and application base. Supported HW: majority of existing resistive and capacitive single- and multi-touch sensor overlay panels and devices, MS Kinect depth tracker.
