When I had my netbook, I always just wished I could poke at the screen and let it do my bidding. Now that I no longer have my netbook(plan to buy another one again), this sweet kit from Japan comes along.

This video is for the Acer Aspire One, but on their website, other popular netbooks are supported.

Do you guys think Netbook's should just come with a touchscreen already? Or do you think touchscreens are overrated?

I personally would love to play around with it for making graphics for a game. No more scanner required.

I have laptop with a stylus touch screen. it doesn't work with my fingers, it just works with the pen-like stylus. I really love it. I can do pixel art with the stylus in the OHR, but what I love most is drawing with it using MyPaint.

Touchscreens are better with a Stylus(less finger prints) and worked well when Palm was popular. I used to have a Zire 21, a Z22, and still have my Palm TX kicking around. I don't like the fact that the iPhone only works with your finger, it makes it rather useless for artists who don't finger paint. My Android actually works better with a stylus than it does with my finger.

I was wondering how you managed to make awesome graphics in wandering hamster... Now I know.

Actally although I do use my stylus for pixel art occasionally, most of the sprites in wandering hamster were mainly drawn using the keyboard.

Keyboard.

I'm also experimenting with scans.
