i have a laptop and was thinking it would be cool to be able to have some game im working on to support gestures from my laptops touchpad. Not sure if laptop mouse pads support multiple inputs at once, but im guessing they might. Im wondering if there is some way to access this information from c++ in windows (im running vista). Some special mouse API perhaps? thoughts and ideas appreciated.

As far as I'm aware, the hardware chooses which signals it receives are likely to be a finger and only deliver data about that one cursor position.

The only touchpads I know of that support multitouch are the new series of Apple and custom touchscreen technology (like Microsoft Surface).

You could still watch for single-finger gestures. Install the mouse gesture extension for Firefox and play around for some inspiration.
