There are two sides to a TipTile: the viewer, which is an application that displays content on a Microsoft Pixelsense device, and the editor, which is used to create the presentations (which we will call TipTiles).
The viewer is a multitouch application, that comes with its own installer and will be installed on the Pixelsense.
The editor is used to create TipTile presentations and install them on the Pixelsense in the form of content packages. Each installed package will show up in the Pixelsense launcher as a separate application.
The editor is installed on a USB stick. This means that it can be used on any laptop or desktop computer (running Windows 7, Vista or XP). Created TipTiles will be stored on the USB-stick, complete with all imported material.
This USB stick can then be plugged into a Pixelsense device to install the TipTile from within the editor.
Important: the program will only run from the USB stick it was delivered on.
How to use
The use of the viewer is selfexplanatory, as it should be, for a good NUI application.
The editor takes a little explanation, with an overview of the options and features and some information on what kind of data are suited and how to prepare them.
