The Magic Touch is supposedly the world’s first USB touchscreen monitor and I think I want one, but not at the prices they want for such a small screen. They’ve got two versions, the Magic Touch and the Magic Touch Deluxe that are going for $299.99 and $329.99 respectively. For those prices I can get an entire tablet or two that I could use as a monitor as well.

The Mimo Magic Touch can respond to as many as four touch-points at any one time, so it is a perfect solution for touchscreen control panels in such applications as point-of-sale (POS) input and entry, corporate videoconferencing, smart home entertainment systems, and industrial/manufacturing controls. It is also ideal for a range of other touchscreen applications in healthcare, hospitality, retail, education, sound/video editing, and many other industries. Furthermore, its versatile design allows for screen removal and independent use from its docking station, as either a tethered USB-powered tablet or mounted display (via the VESA 75 mounting system).

Like other products in the MimoMonitors.com line of USB mini-monitors, the Mimo Magic Touch also allows users to de-clutter their crowded, primary desktop monitor and offload popular business applications such as web browsers, Microsoft Outlook, Excel, Word, Skype, and instant messaging. For personal use, the Mimo Magic Touch can act as a great peripheral monitor for social networking, iTunes and media players, chat windows, online auctions, stock tracking tools, fantasy sports dashboards, and more.

Compact and versatile, the Mimo Magic Touch screen is less than 1-inch thick and weighs under 1lb, while featuring a best-in-class 1024 x 600 resolution – offering sharp graphics and clear images for video, multi-media design, and a full range of business needs. It is fully compatible with Windows 7, and can act as a display-only monitor with Windows Vista/XP/2000 and Mac OS.
