Hello Shahed,

I would like to extend your gesture recorder so that it also captures tangible activity. The problem is that the CameraImage object I use is passed to MultiTouchChangedEvents. What you use in your recording application is FrameChangedEvents. Is it OK if I add the CameraImage to FrameChanged as well?

Also, how do you then test the xml file generated?

Hi Maha,

The current xml format is good for saving small amount of properties (i.e. touch position, size, pressure...) but may not be the best thing to save raw images. Do you have any data structure in mind to save the additional data you mentioned (i.e. raw CameraImage)?

Hi Shahed

I don't need to save the actual image - just the features detected in each frame. Another option would be to process each image and save the names and info of t he tangibles found on the surface at each stage.

Also, can you explain to me how the unit tests use the xml for testing? I noticed you are using Moles - why do you need that?
