Update

Haven’t posted in a couple of weeks…lots of action on the multitouch front, and not.

My monitor came in the mail. I started to disassemble it – just unscrewed a couple of screws and started to pry off the casing. I was talking to someone [Bridger Maxwell] about the monitor disassembly, and he told me that it was  a good idea to have your table and monitor mount 100% ready when you disassemble, so you can plant the monitor in its spot and never touch it again – the more you move it, the more likely you are to get dead lines/pixels, or break it.

So, I’ve been making sketchup models of what my box is going to look like – I’m going with a wooden frame, covered with MDF. One of my friends gave me a great idea regarding how to mount the LCD:ideaoverlay . That’s a very rough sketch, but you get the idea – I was going to use a dremel, etc., but this is so much simpler – the bottom piece would obviously be much smaller than the pic, of course.

I’ve done a bunch of sketchup models, for the various possibilities – 3/4″ thick wood, 1/2″ thick wood, with a lower frame, without a lower frame…here are all of them, from rapidshare [[UPDATE: NEW LINKS]]:

It’s winter break right now, so I’m hoping I get a chance to go to Home Depot/Lowe’s and pick up some wood. Itching to take my monitor apart 🙂

    oh before you do that… rapidshare links only last 10 downloads if they are not associated with an account.

    Have you seen this multi-touch sensor?

      Hey Manu,
      No, I hadn’t seen that – its pretty cool; looks like work similar to that of many nuigroup users – the pong app looks familiar.
      thanks for sharing!
