Palying Starcraft 2 Is More Fun With Touch Screens

The team at U Mass Lowell’s robotics lab have taken a couple of 21 inch 3M touchscreen monitors costing $1,600 each and setup a dual monitor duelling rig for Starcraft 2.

If you a fan of Starcraft 2 and have yet to experience the game playing with touch screens. Watch the video after the jump to see the setup in action.

The setup has been rigged without any need to alter Starcrafts core executable files providing each player with pretty much all the commands they require to duel it out.

Key controls include using pinch-to-zoom and two-finger dragging to control the camera with units easily controlled by simply tapping them and then their new location.
