Windows 7 Multi-Touch development and testing without Mulit-Touch hardware!

Project Description
Multi-Touch Vista is a user input management layer
that handles input from various devices (touchlib, multiple mice, TUIO etc.) and
normalises it against the scale and rotation of the target window. Now with
multitouch driver for Windows 7.

Very cool!

Take up Windows 7 Multi-Touch development without having to own Multi-Touch enabled hardware for testing by installing the “Multi-Touch” Vista drivers and connecting multiple mice to your system.

Each mouse can then be used independently, each simulating a touch-point.

The Microsoft Surface SDK provides a wonderful Surface simulator that has the same feautre, but so far, this is only available to partners and developers owning a Surface developer unit.

Having this support natively in Windows 7 is great for every developer!
