I have a Cr-48 Chrome OS developer PC with a Windows 7, Chrome OS, Android Honeycomb, and Ubuntu quad-boot. To use Android I use the trackpad, but I was wondering if anyone knows where to find an appropriate digitizer. It is a 12.1" screen with a 16:10 ratio. It would more than likely need a USB connection. The touchscreen would mainly be used for Android if possible, but also for Win7 & Ubuntu. I am very eager about this project. Please help!

Hello, I'm currently trying to use a touchscreen that has 4 wires but 8 pins. I have a connector with 8 outputs, but I read some topics about touchscreens and everybody uses just 4 of them. So, right now, I'm using just 4 pins (It works with some noises) and my question is: If I use the 8 pins it will be better? If yes, how to connect them? Here is the touchscreen model: https://www.digikey.com/product-detail/en/nkk-switches/FTAS00-104AS4/360-3037-ND/4508087 I'm putting the screen configuration as an attachment.

Is there any way I can transform my monitor into a touchscreen by using just a webcam that I can point to my monitor and detects my finger over it? Single touch would be OK.. I dont necessarily need multitouch feature.. I've heard about camspace free software (camspace.com project) but that detects any shiny objects which in turn you can use to control things like mouse cursor etc.. But I need "finger on the monitor" touchmotion and not just motion of finger in mid air.(which camspace does). if you can get what I meant...

Last day I bought a 3.5 inch touchscreen from amazon it was written in the description that it was compatible with arduino uno which I currently have but when the screen arrived it was only compatible with arduino mega and I couldnt return. Is there any thing I can do with the screen to work with uno or should I have to buy an arduino mega

I'm looking to create a desktop touchscreen interface. I've seen the LCD projectors, but I was thinking that instead of creating a projector, just put a stripped LCD similar to an LCD projector: http://www.engadget.com/2006/10/17/how-to-build-your-own-hd-projector-part-1/ underneath an IR display like this: https://www.instructables.com/id/Interactive-Multitouch-Display/ Beneath it all, I would put an IR converted webcam & a lamp. The goal is to make it as compact as possible under the desk. This design hinges upon the IR light from the touch screen passing through the stripped LCD. Thoughts?

Hi team I posted this on the Arduino forum, and had a search through several electronics sites; perhaps there's also someone here who can suggest something. I have successfully hooked up my touchscreen to Max via Arduino; the code is fine, the circuit is fine and the Max patch is fine. I'm just wondering if it's possible to tweak the sensitivity of the entire circuit? When touching, one must press fairly firmly, otherwise any relaxation of touch, even with continued contact, results in a rapid fall to zero. In the Max patch, I'm using [sel 0]-> outR, after all the [serial] gubbins to help smooth some jitter. But is it possible to tweak the sensitivity, perhaps by using resistor values other than 10k. Hey, maybe even connect a variable resistor to allow realtime tweaks? Hmmm. Thanks Brendan

Hello, I'm looking to turn an old laptop into a wall mounted terminal and I was wanting to use a touchscreen as the interface. Does anyone know any good vendors for a cheap 14" widescreen touch overlay or better yet instructions on how to build one? Thanks!

I want to either make a touchscreen or install one (though I don't know where I would source the parts for that). Basically I don't want the touchscreen to pick up on my hand. I have a Wacom Bamboo tablet which requires a stylus and that's essentially what I want here. That would most likely be an inductive touchscreen, so I'd be interested in making something like that. Preferably mostly see-through if possible. Basically: How would I make that (or where would I buy a raw element for something like that), and how difficult would it be to interface with that (i.e. via microcontroller). Thanks.

Can anyone give me some advise on how to go about using this for something more useful? It's a touchscreen micro-computer of sorts that has an SD card installed. On that card are several videos files that run automatically and upon touchscreen prompts. I'm thinking that it'd be nice to upload a video for the applicable season (think Halloween theme) and place it in my window so passers by can admire a scrolling video of something amusing. The SD card is a 4GB card and is only partially used (just over 3GB free)

Hi All, I'm trying to figure out how feasible it would be to harvest a touchscreen from an old smart phone (say, a $35 LG on ebay) and integrate it into a DIY electronics project (eg. an Arduino project). Are the connections just hopelessly convoluted inside the phone or do many phones have fairly sensible screens that can be re-used? Thanks in advance for any insight. Sean

Now that it's 20 degrees Fahrenheit outside, I normally wear some thick gloves to keep my hands warm. But whenever I need to use my Iphone, I need to slip them off to operate the touchscreen. I heard that the Iphone touchscreen recognizes the electrical resistance of the skin to measure where you're touching it, but I don't know if this is true. I was wondering if there was any method to perhaps simulate the resistance of my skin on the fingertips of my gloves using some substance. The problem is, I don't what to use. Also, if what I heard was wrong, I would appreciate any other suggestions on how to use the touchscreen without taking my gloves off.

So I have this seriously old touch screen desktop from FEC. I've been browsing around and found how to turn laptop LCD screens into monitors using controller boards, finding them by looking up the model number of the screen. I could probably use find the monitor stuff by myself, but when it comes to the touch screen interface, I'm clueless on what to look for. These are the pictures that I took of the boards and model numbers, and I'm assuming I would need something to either connect to the middle board, or something to replace it. I'm willing to take on the task, I just don't know entirely where to go from here as this is the first time I've really dug deep into something like this. The model number and barcodes are from the back of the monitor. At the end of the think white wire there are a ton of connections that go the the old motherboard of the computer. Is there anyone that might be able to give me a hand on what to find? Number on the large center board:............................RG9000PB0880 V1.0 Below the number there is another number: 0821 Number for the small connector on the far right:.....RG9000PB0260 There's USB1 and AUDIO1 connectors on the large board in the center, and I'm assuming the long board at the bottom is power. mini-update: Could it also be possible to change the touch screen controller, run it into my computer via USB, and then find a controller for the LCD screen?

Question by sandy.john3 | last reply
So I recently got my hands on a Magellan Roadmate 6000t car GPS unit. It's pretty nice, and has a touch screen as well as tactile buttons on the sides of the screen. I don't really have any use for it as a navigation unit, since I know my city VERY well, so I am looking into making it into some sort of pda/minicomputer type of thing. Maybe not even for the Internet, just music, photos, etc. However, there is a catch. Whenever I turn it on, it shows a blue screen. This may be because it is run on Windows Mobile, and it has been disrupted, or because of a hardware failure. But when I connect it to a computer, nothing shows up. So I'm looking for ideas on what to do and HOW. Also, I have a Creative Zen Vision W that I think I might want to put win mobile or something similar on, but the GPS is the first priority. So, any ideas?

My mission is to have my house automated, and in that process, in each room I want to have a touchscreen LCD monitor with a laptop mounted behind it displaying stats for that room (e.g temperature, weather, news, panic button etc). I've come up with a mockup of what the very basics of the UI would include. Each unit will be connected by wireless (or CAT6 depending if I can be bothered) to my main server, which will push all the data not collected by the sensors (e.g news). What would be the best way to design the UI and to link it with the various sensors involved?

I'm trying to use the touchscreen display for another purpose, but I am having trouble identifying the touch module and its pin-outs. For your information, the display is a Samsung LTM230HT03 The touch module is made by HannStar, it has the following markings on the back of the board: HannStar J MV-4 94V-0 1 01 4 DATQ2TH34C0 REV:C TQ2M10400D1M 3FTQ2CB00W0 1.1.1207.2 On the front of the board is a PXI chip with the following markings: PAP7030GM -B U946QF2C As well as a smaller chip, which is marked as a MX-70G I've attached photos of both sides of the module as well as the label on the Samsung display. There are 4 connectors on the module, CON1 connects to the mainboard, CON2 and CON3 connects to the display, CON4 was not in use. CON1 has the following wire colours in order from pin 1 to 5: Red, Orange, Yellow, Green, Black. I will greatly appreciate any help or suggestions that anyone can give.

Good afternoon, all! As the title sums up, I am looking at the Kangaroo PC , which is a $99 battery-powered pocket PC, about the size of a cell-phone, with a tablet processor and a full Windows 10 OS, and I'm asking myself one question. Why is this not a cell phone yet?! Basically, I want to install an LCD touchscreen, a 4G LTE module, and some software. This project is similar to Raspberry Pi cell phones, in the sense that it will be DIY, and the new Microsoft Lumia, in the sense that it hooks up to a monitor for desktop. Does anybody have any advice, or know what direction to point me in? I am specifically asking for help with the 4G LTE module and maybe the LCD Touchscreen. I'm not sure what to get, where to get them, or how to install them. (I've searched and found miniPCIe and m.2 modules, so far.)
