California developer Troll Touch has announced the availability of its internally integrated touchscreen system for Apple's recently released 24-inch LED Cinema display. Already available for Apple's 20- and 30-inch Cinema displays, the product joins the company's lineup of high-resolution, analog resistive touchscreen systems which support user input via fingertip, gloved hand or stylus. Powered via an internal USB connection, Troll Touch says that its custom touchscreen overlay design and innovative component integration technique does not alter the machine's form factor in any way. To the casual observer, the system does not appear to have been modified.
Customers may purchase the touch-enabled display from Troll Touch, an Apple VAR and PSP, for $2,300 or they may supply their own previously purchased machines for custom touchscreen integration. The cost is $1,400, which includes the integration, a custom engineered touch sensitive overlay, touchscreen controller, cables and complete system test.
