Thats why you'd need a Bug screenOriginally Posted by jderou
It looks like the item shown differs from the normal way it is done by ELO and others, these manufacturers use a clear hard plastic screen that has two layers with either invisible electrodes or a resistive grid of extremely fine wires embedded, there is a connector at the screen edge that connects to
an interface that plugs into the serial port. This type is also used in restaurants etc where they get probabally the highest use of any touch screen, These usually suffer the worst over time due to the screen getting constantly tapped with credit card edges which over a period starts to cut into the hard plastic, I have usually salvaged these for the serial interface once they are shot.
The one in the link appears to just be a scanning device mounted to the top of the monitor.

I do have one from ELO.
It came from a defect 15 inch screen what was used in a bar to play mp3 music in a kind of jukebox. I removed it. And fitted again in a secound hand 15 inch LCD screen. It exist out 1 layer of harded glass. And if you hold it against to sun, you can see the thin wires on the backside.
It works perfect. There is a settings programm available. In witch you can change the sensivity of touching.
And I can still use the mouse.
And if you have problems with fly's, just change the settings. Or put the dustbin anywhere else.
