Multi-touch on Resistive touchscreens

Whoa, who would've thought it would be possible? Well, it's not actually a COMPLETE success but Jamie Fuller, a coder from our own backyard, has successfully created a multi-touch game for the Nokia 5800 XpressMusic. The game is called SpaceDancer and has a similar gameplay to the Guitar Hero games (You press a button with a corresponding music track).

The game is in the Aplha stage but is already available for download from Jamie Fuller's website. It's actually pretty cool, you can see a video demo below. Of course, some commenters from his blog report some bugs such as the multi-touch not always working but it's a start.

Now if only Jamie moves away from the Symbian platform and develops a similar game for windows mobile then I'll be TOTALLY stoked! To Microsoft, go offer Jamie big bucks and let him develop a fully working application that would make windows mobile resistive touchscreen phones, multi-touch capable!
