Hacker gets multi-touch working on T-Mobile G1

The same day Microsoft led an investment round in N-trig, a maker of multi-touch technology, individual programmer Luke Hutchinson managed to get multi-touch partially working for applications on Android.

He’s put together an amazing hack–and open-sourced it on his website–showing how multi-touch can be used with Android apps.  The coolest bit is the demonstation using Google Maps about four minutes into the video.

Getting multi-touch to work requires a little bit of programming skill and there are some limitations with the Synaptic touchscreen of the T-Mobile G1.  But if you can modify the Android Java stack, you should be able to get this going on your own.
