Microsoft had made available Touch Pack for Windows 7 for OEMs only, sometime ago, so that they could bundle it with their multi-touch capable Windows 7 PCs. This meant that those who had older touch capable PCs such as HP TX2 ( Vista version) didn’t get Touch Pack to test out the capabilities and experiences of Windows 7 Touch. But now Microsoft has finally made it available to the general public as a free download and play with.
Touch Pack contains 3 games and 3 applications that provide a wonderful touch experience on touch capable PCs. Here’s what’s included in the Microsoft Touch Pack:
Microsoft Blackboard, an intricate game of physics in which you solve a puzzle by creating a fanciful machine on a blackboard.
Microsoft Garden Pond, a tranquil game that takes place in serene Japanese water gardens.
Microsoft Rebound, a game in which you use your fingertips to control Tesla spheres with an electrical field between them to catapult a metal game ball into your opponent’s goal.
Microsoft Surface Globe, a program that you can use to explore the earth as a flat 2-D map or as an immersive 3-D experience.
Microsoft Surface Collage, a program that you can use to explore and interact with your photos and arrange them as a desktop background.
Microsoft Surface Lagoon, a screen saver and interactive water simulation, complete with a meditative rock arrangement and playful, shy fish.
