    Want to buy a touch-screen laptop but couldn't afford it?



    AirBar turns any laptop, computer, or notebook into a touchscreen machine, without making any changes to its hardware

    When connected to your laptop via an available USB port, AirBar starts emitting a beam of invisible light across your screen that is used to track touchscreen movements and gestures.




    The movements and gestures are then translated into corresponding inputs, making you able to use all the gestures including poking, pinching, swiping, zooming and scrolling around with your hand, in the same way, like on a touchscreen PC.



    AirBar works well with any device running Windows 8 or Windows 10 or even with a Chromebook, but it still needs to have proper OS X support.













    ps/i am not promoting this or have any realtion with i have just found this, and wnat to share it with you



    cheers/amoon/

    I still avoid my laptops touch pad. Having to touch the screen as well would be a step too far. I'd take a mouse and a keyboard over that any day. I'd sell it though!

    Wow, looks like AirBar is a decent device. I have touchscreen on my ASUS laptop and it would be a good idea to have touchscreen on Mac.
