3M Multitouch Developer Kit

Description

If you're a developer looking for a drop in monitor for coding Windows 7 Multitouch applications, 3M has a kit for you. This 19" monitor may seem very pricey at $1499, but keep in mind this is huge for a capacitive display. Normally monitors this large will have an optical tracking system for the touchpoints, leaving you with 2-4 touch points at best. This capacitive glass-front display is good for a full 10-point multi-touch experience. Check the site for more details and videos of the monitor in action.

    This seems awful pricey. $1499 for a  19" Touch Screen monitor. Here's a 22 inch Dell monitor.  It's $849.00, and it also has a capacitive display.

     

    Unless I"m missing something, the only benefit to the HP Monitor is USB / RS-232 support for non-Windows 7 applications.

     

    Is there something I've missed?

     

    EDIT: The $849.00 was a promotion price. The price on the link is actually $1149.00, still cheaper for a bigger monitor.
