The 3D Touch Developer Challenge is intended to create commercially-oriented applications that take advantage of the OpenHaptic toolkit and PHANTOM Omni haptic device, which add the dimension of touch and true 3D navigation to a wide variety of OpenGL API applications, from design to games and entertainment to simulation and visualization. The OpenHaptics toolkit is patterned after the OpenGL API, making it familiar to graphics programmers and facilitating integration with new or existing OpenGL applications. The competition will begin on August 9, 2004 and will conclude with the submission of applications on December 31, 2004. Winners will be chosen by a panel of industry experts and will be announced in early 2005. A total of $22,500 in prize money will be awarded.
