    50" Touch Overlay...

    This isnt necessarily car related but I thought it would be the best place to ask. 17" touch overlay kits are relatively cheap (160-200 dollar range) so I was wondering if anyone has seen these for large lcd screens or plasma screens. I'm expecting to pay 1000-1500 but the cheapest I can find is 2500+. So I ask this: does anyone know where to find touch kits for large screens for a decent price? Thanks!

    i was in a class the other day and they had a projector in there on this white board...big **** i didnt think anything of it..but when the teacher was using it as a ******* touchscreen my jaw dropped...its about 50 or 60 inch touchscreen...sooo cool. however you need a projector to use on it..i think they said it was about 1500 bucks 3 years ago...so i imagine its cheaper than that now...i think its called a smartboard.

    They've had weird versions designed to hold dry-erase markers for a long time.. Basically triangulates/digitizes any strokes made with the markers which are placed in special RF holders. Seems they now have touchscreen-esque features to sync with a projector, though I dont see why it would need to be a projector. Could put the same system on a plasma for about $600-$1000.

    Currently: Enjoying the setup, but always contemplating my next move...

    We have a 60 inch touchscreen here at work. I was told it was around $12,000. It has different color markers to draw on the screen as well. We use it for demos and training of our software. The thing is B@d@zz.

    i still want to know WHY anyone would need this

    besides meetings and other such group oriented things

    for normal home/car use, yeah right, lol
