I'm Mike from Hyperplane Interactive.
We've been working on a new 3D home automation program for over 2 years now and we'd like you guys to check out what we have so far!
We are still in the development stages and are now comfortable enough with our engine to start collecting comments and ideas for where to take this next.Touch Control System (TCS)
is an easy-to-use 3D platform for controlling your home, car, boat, electronics projects, and more!

We built a wall, textured and painted it, and mounted a touch screen. This was our first live video test (no audio):https://vimeo.com/53309957
Here in an intro video for Lua scripting with TCS:https://vimeo.com/49282135
And a walk-through of making basic 3D models in 3ds Max for Touch Control System:https://vimeo.com/56537071
An in-depth article going over some functionality:http://hyperplaneinteractive.com/blog/tcs-in-depth/
Here is our API page for Lua integration:http://hyperplaneinteractive.com/blog/tcs-lua-api-documentation/
Our program already works great with Arduino
boards, National Control Devices
boards, and we really want to stretch the possibilities of what it can do.
We built a controllable robot that can roam around within the range of any wireless network (with pan/tilt camera, of course). We also attached model helicopters (Syma S107) that we can fly around using touch input or Xbox controllers. I used this program to control my Christmas tree lights with the touch of a 3D button using a network-controlled power strip built with an Arduino board and an 8 channel relay board.
We just added support for the NeuroSky Mindwave
This software will be free for anyone who wants to learn to control physical objects with a 3D environment.
Thanks for checking it out! Let us know what you think!
