Software Implementing TUIO

TUIO Client Reference Implementations

The following TUIO 1.1 libraries are part of the reacTIVision framework and are available for the most common programming languages and media environments. Third party implementations for further programming languages are listed below. The source code of these TUIO 1.1 reference implementations is licensed under the LGPL and hosted publicly on Github. You are most welcome to contribute to the further development of these TUIO reference implementations, and can freely use them for the implementation of your own TUIO enabled applications.
