GestureWorks Core

GestureWorks Core version 1.5 is a powerful authoring framework and touch point cluster analysis system for multitouch. GestureWorks Core includes a library of over 300 pre-built gestures and includes support for the world’s first markup language for multitouch.

Multiple Languages & Frameworks

GestureWorks Core for C++, .NET (C#), Java, and Python allows you to author in the language of your choice. GestureWorks Core provides standardized development and support for Gesture Markup Language (GML) across multiple languages. We offer detailed tutorial examples showing how to use GestureWorks Core with Cinder, openFrameworks, Unity 3D, and Java 2D.

Advanced Multitouch Framework
for Windows

GestureWorks Core is streamlined to take advantage of Windows Desktop native touch events. GestureWorks-built applications can run on any multitouch or touch-enabled hardware that supports Windows 10, Windows 8, or Windows 7. The efficiency of GestureWorks Core means your projects will have extraordinary performance regardless of the hardware device.

Gesture-Based Authoring

GestureWorks Core comes complete with definitions for fully editable and extensible pre-built gestures and the capacity to develop virtually any number of gestures. GestureWorks Core offers support for GML, the world’s first markup language for HCI. Support for physical properties like inertia filters, noise filters, and others are built in.

HCI Engine
Coming Soon!

GestureWorks Core has been developed as a universal HCI engine. Along with touch screens and motion-recognition devices, future plans for GestureWorks Core include the use of accelerometers, surface tangibles, wearables, eye-tracking, and other HCI devices.
