Mimo Monitors has just announced their Magic Touch 10.1″ Capacitive Touchscreen. While a touch screen is nothing new and neither is video via USB connection, the Magic Touch manages to combine both and can be connected using a single USB 2.0 cable. Running a resolution of 1024X600 it’s only fully touch compatible with Windows 7 and while the panel is technically capable of four-point multi-touch, you’ll only get single touch. The screen can be removed from its base dock easily and used independently as a tethered tablet or for mounting via a standard Vesa connector.
Aimed at applications like retail POS, healthcare, manufacturing and education, the Touch could also be used to declutter your desktop and get things like IM, chat and other functions off your primary monitor.
Available for preorder from Mimo with shipping around December 12, the Magic Touch is $299 while the Magic Touch Deluxe which adds 2 USB ports ( you’ll need an additional AC adapter to power them if required) is $329.99
