Make any monitor a touch screen! Answered

Has anyone had any experience in taking a web cam, attaching it to the top of a monitor, then programming it to recognize face and hand movements, sort of how digital cameras today recognize faces, so it can be used to control a mouse. It would be sort of like having a virtual touch screen on any monitor and if someone could do this, I'd bet they'd make a lot of money.

You can search for multitouchpads, which do something similar. Also you can google and find software to control the mouse with your eyes using a webcam. A lot of it's free and opensource!
