Do you love your iMac ? Do you want to control it with your fingers? Turns out theres a pretty neat solution that will turn it into a touchscreen unit, thanks to a company named Troll Touch whove created a DIY SlipCOVER kit that adds a finger-sensitive layer to the screens front panel, turning it into a nice useful user interface machine that can be used in kiosks, exhibitions, clinics or even in school. The user-installable kit comes in two configurations, matching both 20-inch or 24-inch aluminum iMacs. Once you buy it you have to install the touchscreen drivers and calibrate the screen for maximum accuracy. Regretfully, it doesnt support MultiTouch gestures due to OS restrictions, but its still very usable, as you can see in the video after the break. Priced at $699 (20?) and $899 (24?), the SlipCOVER is not a cheap solution but definitely an efficient one.
