Can you please provide further details of what problems did you
encounter?  We cannot provide any help otherwise.

The goal of Psychosynth is not to provide a clone of the Reactable but
to ease the development highly interactive modular synthesizers
providing a good programming framework.  The 3D interface is there for
the sake of example and fun.  I agree that 3D is of little value, a more
practical 2D interface might be developed in the future if I find time
and will.  Remember that this is an experimental project developed for
free, if you can improve the program, just send us the changes or
provide constructive criticism on how it could be made better.
