AS3 Multitouch Freelance Job

Hello List –

We’re looking for someone with strong AS3 skills to develop a map-
based multitouch interface. The map software will be a permanent part
of the soon-to-be-redesigned New York City Visitor Center on 52nd
Street. We’ve specified three large (6′ x 3.5′) multitouch tables that
will sit in the middle of the space and be used to show an interactive
map of NYC. By moving a physical puck around the map, visitors will be
able to get information about various areas, and create custom

We’re looking for someone to develop the interface for the table. In
general we need someone with super strong AS3 skills, who is able to
create elegant, manageable, and well-structured code. We’re going to
be loading a lot of data in and out, and since this has to run for 12
hour stretches, the code need to be very efficient and memory-
friendly. The visual and interaction design is mostly complete, so it
should be a pretty straightforward development job, though we would
love to get someone with a good sense of how to make a UI flow well.
We’re open to other suggestions as far as the development language,
but there are a few open source components available to Flash that
would be a lot of work to port to another language. The underlying
framework that does the multitouch sensing is taken care of through a
separate piece of software, so we only need development of the client

The project will need to wrap up September 15, and we’d like to be
testing something by the middle of August. I can send an RFP with
more specs and visual design to interested parties. Should be a really
fun job and, as I mentioned, will be both permanent and prominent
within the space. If you’re interested or have questions, please reply
to Thanks!
