There are few things quite as embarrassing as reaching forward to use your finger to swipe the screen on your laptop, before you sheepishly realize that it’s not a tablet. Go on admit it, you’ve done it too, haven’t you? Well now we may be able to help.
This Touch Screen Camera For Laptop is designed to turn an ordinary screen – laptop or desktop – into a touchscreen. It’s also a regular webcam, which makes it twice as useful. The product is compatible with Windows 8 (stop sneering) and comes with a touch pen to replace a regular mouse.
We’re torn between admiration for the concept and a little bit of worry about clamping a great big ‘thing’ on top of your screen in front of our peers, but there’s no doubt that it could be useful in certain circumstances.
The whole kit is priced at $42.83 / £26.11.
