Hi, I hope you can help!
I’m working on a open source 17″ tablet for the DIY 3D printing community. I am in desperate need for a 17″ – 17.1″ either 16:9 or 16:10 USB Multi touch screen overlay.
I have been searching for weeks now and am only coming across single touch resistive and IR multi touch panels. We only really need dual touch panels with as good light transparency as possible, as these are graphics editing machines were making. Projective capacitive panels would be the ideal tech I assume.
Am I missing something? How can I find such a beast?

I am intrested in creating a device, with contains a multi-touch capacitive screen, with many curves, and bends. I was wondering, if generally, for whatever dimensions, if this were possible, and a possible price range?

That sounds like a really interesting concept! I’m curious as to what kind of application it would be used for. I will have Touch Guy do a more indepth answer for you, but the short answer is maybe. Theoretically, you should be able to do this, however I don’t know how much of an impact multiple curves and bends will have on the display since each row and column is individually scanned to find where the touches are. Will send this to Touch Guy and post his response. Thanks for the great question!

Hello, I am also interested in something similar, but with a shaped screen, like abstract shaped, possible also?

Yes, odd shapes are no problem. Touch Guy recently answered a similar question which might help – http://www.touch-intl.com/touchblog/?p=477
