A YouTube user has posted a video entitled, "Multitouch with Hacked Kinect (HD)," where he demos his hands to move photos around a desktop, resize them, and twirl them around. The screen also shows the computer's view of the user, even identifying the user's hands as he tracks the images around the screen.

Floemuc commented that, "I thought I'd get the mandatory picture-browsing stuff done so it's out of the way and everybody can focus on more interesting things. According to him, he used Ubuntu Linux as his development platform, libfreenect (the Kinect drivers), and libTISCH, from the "Tangible Interactive Surfaces for Collaboration between Humans" project.
