Im new to the Arduino and im new to touch frames, I have researched/Googled this ALOT and not really found what i want to do apart from something that will cost hundreds of pounds to build. I am very technically minded but seem to be stumped with this.
I am currently building a home system using an old vaio laptop and an external monitor. The monitor is just standard and the laptop insides are based behind the screen encased in a custom build box (see image attached). This is to be attached to the wall therefore im looking to make the screen a touchscreen but i want to build it instead of buying as this is a completely DIY project.
I have looked at Johnny Lee’s videos and thought combining his idea of finger tracking with the wii mote touchscreen but i cannot get the wii mote to pick it up properly with it being so close to the screen.
I came across the zero touch frame and think this is my best bet, would this be something that could be controlled by the Arduino? and if so would it be as simple as wiring the IR LED’s and IR Receivers to the Arduino and letting the coding do the rest of the work?
A simpler version of this:
Really appreciate any help i can get.
