how to convert an LCD monitor to touch screen Answered

hello guys I am looking for the way to build a panel to convert any screen to touch the idea is basically like the frames that I leave in the video that in theory would be infrared led or any more practical and functional idea is also appreciated.

if you ask and why not buy it before you get into this whole thing? well unfortunately those who live in South America and more in my country is practically impossible to buy products especially when they come from outside :(

I would plough through the DIY projects and see what fits your ability and materials.

Hi, thanks for your response if there are many videos through there but the majority uses the projector and camera in that sense if it would be clear, the case is that I look for something like this video:

PS: A thousand apologies for my English if it is something strange, greetings ..
