Touchscreen devices are growing more and more popular. Before long, every surface is going to start to look like it’s straight off the bridge of the Enterprise. While it’s fun to get a new tablet or phone to play with, wouldn’t it be really cool if you made your own touchscreen gadget? Well with this Microtouch kit, you can.
This kit contains everything you need to make your own touch-sensitive device. You’ll get a 2.8-inch TFT resistive screen (320×240 resolution), an Atmega32u4 8-bit microcontroller, micro-SD slot, accelerometer, battery and charger. The original developer even threw in a core operating system which features a few basic apps and games. Not bad for a $69 purchase.
