PyMT: a planet, wang and launcher


First of all, the PyMT Planet is open ! It’s the place to have all developpers news about PyMT 🙂

Yesterday, i’ve (re-)made the wang game : a pong game style. I don’t known why my brain failed on the first version, and i’ve redone the whole code from scratch, without Box2D. This is a “must-done”, and it’s commited ! Check on pymt/examples/wang/.



PyMT – Wang game rapid demo

One week ago, i’ve made a demonstration of PyMT + Multitouch FTIR table from Jimi at job. For this show, i’ve made a launcher who look like this. The launcher is available on the Projects page.
