Kids Playing Star Wars Fleet Commander on a Giant Touch Screen...!!!

Holy Crap this is cool.. I want to play like this, but pretty sure me and my buddies would end up on the ground brawling. Also this game requires standing up. I prefer sitting down with a beer and a bowl of nachos.

Developed at the Electronic Visualization Laboratory (EVL) by MS graduate candidate Arthur Nishimoto, "Fleet Commander" explores how a real-time interactive strategy game that would typically rely on complex keyboard commands and mouse interactions be transferred into a multi-user, multi-touch environment.

Originally designed for use with TacTile, a 52-inch multi-touch LCD tabletop display, "Fleet Commander" game play has been ported to
EVL's 20-foot wide multi-touch LCD wall, Cyber-Commons.

"Fleet Commander" uses Processing, an open source programming language.
