How can I use an iPad touchscreen replacement for my homemade tablet pc ? Answered

Picture of

How about buying only the iPad-Touchscreen for use on a home made tablet-pc ?
Wouldn't it be possible to buy just the glass with the multitouch sensor technology
(as if you had an iPad with a broken front glass and wanted to replace it) and use it on a non apple product ??!!!
Wouldn't it be cool to build your own "iPad" but with many features the real one does not have ?
Thank you for your answers !

Well you'd need the whole electronics-bits, do you think you can get them?

if you mean by "electronics-bits" the part of the screen that registers your fingers (as on the photo) I am sure you could get over the internet. i mean as an replacement for those who broke their ipad front glass. i know that it was possible for iphone and ipod touch to get that part for 30 $ or something like that over the internet....

You can buy such beasties for notebooks anyway already.

I knew that I could buy touchscreens like already said in this:
https://www.instructables.com/id/how-to-touchscreen-EEE-without-soldering-/
But these "usual" touchscreens are not as compfy as the iPad one.
I think the iPad-technology is called inductive touchscreen.
My question was not where to get any sort of touchscreen but how to use the one that's used for the iPad....
