Zmartframe turns monitors into touch-screens


Many new computer systems come with a touch-screen monitor. Soon you'll be able to add touch-screen capabilities to an existing monitor.

Hong Kong-based Gowin Technology is in the later stages of development of an adapter that attaches to an ordinary flat-screen monitor to give it fingertip input capability. The Zmartframe is slated to be available in the early fall.

The frame is mounted over an existing monitor and secured using straps. It uses a USB cable to connect to a Windows PC. The frame can also switch Android Mode, turning it into an oversized Android tablet.

Gowin has a fund-raising campaign in progress at Indiegogo where it hopes to raise $200,000. Supporters who contribute $160 or more will receive a Zmartframe starting in September.
