NextWindow has announced the 2700 Touch Screen Overlay, a device that turns any plasma or LCD screen into a touchscreen.

The device fits over the screen and allows users to click, drag, double-click and right-click by touching the screen.
“The success of all-in-one PCs from HP, Dell and Apple has spawned a new generation of ‘touch screen-native’ consumers who simply expect computers of all shapes and sizes to be touch-enabled,” said Al Monro, CEO at NextWindow. “We are simply responding by giving the public what it wants.”
The 2700 Touch Screen overlay is designed for a range of functions, including public-facing applications such as digital signage and shopping mall directories, and classroom and boardroom presentations where it can create an interactive whiteboard.
The overlay design allows the device to be easily installed without opening the enclosure or voiding the display warranty. Since there are no proprietary drivers to install, users are assured compatibility with most software applications. The 2700 Touch Overlay also supports Windows 7.
