ViewSonic VX2258wm: 22-inch Multitouch LCD Monitor

ViewSonice Europe: The ViewSonic VX2258wm is a 22-inch LCD monitor with infrared optical imaging technology. That means you can reach out and touch it. Just don’t try to multitouch the monitor for too long; that’ll get tiring real soon. There’s even a phrase for that: Gorilla Arm Syndrome.

Steve Jobs during the introduction of the new MacBook Air:

We’ve done tons of user testing on this and it turns out it doesn’t work. Touch surfaces don’t want to be vertical. It gives great demo, but after a short period of time you start to fatigue, and after an extended period of time, your arm wants to fall off.

The specs: 1920×1080, 5ms response time, High Bandwidth Digital Protection (HBDP) Blu-ray device support, £189.
