So I’m excited about this little piece of technology. We currently use Fellowship One for check-in, but we’re only using it as assisted check-in. I want to move toward self check-in stations, but I only have one touch screen. I know that you don’t have to use touch screens, but let’s face it, it’s a better experience. I know that there may be others in a similar situation. You have a lot of monitors already, but you want to move to touch screens. Touch screens cost $500 each (let me know if you know of a better deal) and that’s cost prohibitive for most ministry budgets.
Then I came across Magic Touch, a little device that turns any monitor into a touch screen. It plugs into USB and then calibrates with your screen. I haven’t tested this yet, but I’ve got one on order. In a few weeks I’ll post a review and let you know how it works.
You can get more information on this device here. I actually bought it from here. Check out the video below for and idea of what it looks like. However… although this piece of equipment is pretty innovative and new… the video looks like it was made in the 80’s.

Kenny – thanks for always sharing what you are learning.
I have used these screens for a few years for our checkin system with Shelby and they worked great for us. We overlaid our laptops with them for parents to use during checkin. My only complaint is the usb connection from the computer to the screen, where it connects to the screen. I had to use Popsicle sticks to reinforce the connection because they were prone to pull out and break and it was not super easy to fix.
Overall it is a great product and very easy to use and set up.
What’s the word? Have you tried it out yet?
Not yet. Hasn’t come in yet and I leave for vacation tomorrow. I’ll test it out when I get back in town. Patience. 🙂
Sounds worth a look. Can hardly wait to hear about your experience. Let us know if they have solved the USB connection break issue.
If i want this screen for 24″ LED, then what cost made for this product?
