    The Ultimate Touch Screen!

    Here are some vids of the new touch screen I just installed in my shower. I recorded my wife playing around with the screen. This touch screen is unbelievable! My skin is starting to dissolve cause I don't want to get out of the shower now.

    (Loaded the screens I had already done for my phone so it's not full screen. Was just testing)

        is that some kind of plastic foil placed on the shower glass, which reflects the image?

            I was a bit worried as this is a family program but you did a good job. Is that a projected touch screen on the glass door?

              I am going to go out on a limb and say this is a fictional video.
              Thanks,

                Thanks guys for looking. This is a combination of a transparent rear projection film and an interactive through glass touch screen. It's kinda hard to see the films since they are transparent but if you pay close attention to one of the vids you can see the connection at the very bottom. So the films are actually installed on the outside of the shower, away from water getting to them. This is a temporary intall for testing purposes using my laptop and a projector, but now that I know it works great, I'm going to finish it permanently. I will convert the touch screen to wireless so there is no messy wire and I will put a micro pc in one of my cabinets, hidden from view. The best part is that the window the touchscreen is on, devides the show and the jakuzzi. So when I'm in the shower I can control the house, check my emails, or listen to music, and when I'm in the jakuzzi I can use it to watch movies since the image projects both ways! I'm a distributor of both of these films and a few others. I'm working on a site that should be up in a few weeks, so if any of you guys would like to buy one for your home or business. Due to the pricing they are more intended for commercial use though. I hope I don't get in trouble for posting this. Thanks again guys for looking.

                  I understand where your coming from and believe me, I wasn't crazy about filming my wife in the shower with a towel on, but she insisted that needed to actually make it look like she was taking a shower to better capture the audience. So the water was actually running too. Anyways, I put a big towel on her, so no worries.

                    I'm curious about the ball park figures... if it's $10,000 it's out of the question for most people here.

                    Maybe you can shoot me a PM with rough pricing.

                      or post the pricing...
                      Tasker, to a person who does Homeautomation...is like walking up to a Crack Treatment facility with a truck full of 3lb bags of crack. Then for each person that walks in and out smack them in the face with an open bag.

                        For the same setup you guys saw on the vids, your looking roughly at about $4800. This is just a ball park figure. This includes a 40" through glass interactive film and a transparent rear projection film. Smaller and larger sizes are available too. I'll keep you guys posted when the site is up, so you'll be able to order online. Thanks.

                          that is not too expensive for cutting edge tech like that...

                          that is great...
