[chimera-dev] Multi-touch and Chimera

Hello all,

I am a graduate student at the University of Applied Sciences in Switzerland
and in my diploma work, I would like to develop a multi-touch user interface
for Chimera.
By multi-touch I mean the capability of interpreting simultaneous user
interactions. You can find more info on the technology here:
http://cs.nyu.edu/~jhan/ftirtouch/ <http://cs.nyu.edu/%7Ejhan/ftirtouch/>

I already have a working hardware, now I have to find the software to work
Of course the time and resource limitations of this diploma work wouldn't
allow to interface all the functions of Chimera for multi-touch, so I'd be
aiming to choose a couple of them, those that are used mainly by the users
of Chimera that I know.

So basically my aim would be to take for example the Select-chain menu, the
Actions-color menu and the Tools-Structure Analysis-Distances tool and make
it available to touch interaction. And of course the user would be able to
move around the molecule with one finger along the X and Y axis, he would be
able to turn it around using 3 fingers simultaneously (2 defining the axis
and the third making the rotation) and zoom in and out using 2 fingers

So my question is, would it be possible to have the source code that would
let me do this development?

Thanks a lot for taking the time to read my inquiry.
