Touch screens...
#1
due to those evil people showing off their really cool setups/systems on the Hangout's (well the YouTube after session recordings at least... I keep [bleep] missing the live hangout....)
I have started thinking about working on my CQC setup again...

note:my CQC is currently running/doing its thing... I just really have not done much with interfaces/drivers/anything really in a really long time... I think the last thing I did was load up the Sonos driver and verified it worked... never really implemented it for anything though... still need to hook up my RCS that I installed like a year or two ago... don't want to go too fast or over do it or anything...

so anyway, I was just doing a casual search for touch screens, since other than my Samsung Q1 in my theater, I have no real touch screens, and the Q1's little low def 7" screen isn't much to brag about...
sic0048's kitchen screen seems like a really cool idea... and putting it on an arm or something seems to me to be the perfect solution...

so anyway, I came across this:
Sharp PN-L802B 80" LED LCD Touchscreen Monitor - 16:9 - 6 ms

so anyone using a touch screen like this? any pictures of your UI you would be willing to share?

this looks interesting...

I like the nice thin bezel around all 4 side... looks more picture like...

now just to try and find something closer to like say the 20" size since my kitchen just isn't all that big...

Viewsonic TD2340

supports multitouch:
10-point projected capacitive touch enabled LED monitor with Windows 8 Touch Certification to deliver best in class experience

does CQC support making 10 selections/button presses/etc all at one time?

not sure what really...
but I am sure it would be cool...
maybe IVB will come up with something... he's good at that sorta stuff... but we will probably have to wait until he can get one on ebay...

well, I decided to go with this:
Planar System Inc Helium 997-6848-00 27-Inch Screen LED-Lit Monitor
[Image: 31%2BRoO-imRL._SS400_.jpg]

we will see how it works out... and/or how long it takes me to actually do something with it...
My skilz of procrastination are currently at an all time high...

Should be pretty cool for a wall mounted common area surface.

for some reason it is still a lot of money to buy a touchscreen monitor. I would have thought that the prices would have dropped significantly with the introduction of Win8 and the popularity of touchscreens on tablets etc.

Wonder why they are still asking a premium?

Also, the smaller screens (sub 20") are predominately 4:3 - which looks so old now in a widescreen world. I would want to put a 16:9 screen in the wall to make it look modern, not a 4:3.

To be fair, a good quality, non-touch screen of considerably smaller size used to cost that much not that long ago. The SyncMaster 213T that I have as one of my monitors on my development machine was (however many years ago I bought it) about the same price as the 27" one he is buying, and it's just a regular monitor. And open frame type ones are probably low volume so they'd be more than they might otherwise be.

Actually, when looking at touch screens for desktop use a few weeks ago, it seemed like I could hardly find any that weren't wide screen. I wanted a 4x3 one. Two wide screens, at any decent size, may be way too wide for practical use on most folks desks. And two 1600x1200 4x3's side by side is way more screen real estate than a single typical HD resolution wide screen one.

Even a 4x3 and a wide screen side by side is wider than I'd like. There are 4.x3 ones from specialty vendors for industrial, commercial, kiosk type use, but they are pricey.

well as far as price goes...
the 27" planar while being $900 on Planar's webstore, was only like $670 on amazon with free shipping. still ungoddly expensive, but not quite to the OMG!!!Confusedhock: Confusedhock: of Planar's msrp...

a comparable planar 27" LED monitor is $300 on planar's webstore, and only $258 at amazon...
so only a mere $412 adder for multitouch (amazon pricing)...
ok so that still kind of sucks, and proves your point...

ok how about this: it supports a 10 point or can track 10 touches (however you state that...) multi touch, so it is only really a $41.20/touch adder... that sounds pretty reasonable... (and I am getting pretty good at this whole rationalization thing:-) )
