ViewSonic 22-inch touchscreen monitor unveiled

ViewSonic you can look and touch

ViewSonic has decided that the time is right to get into the touchscreen monitor market, with the announcement of the VX2258wm.

This 22-inch monitor has been primed for your fingers – it uses Infrared Optical Imaging technology which apparently provides accurate multi-touch capabilities.

The monitor has 1080p Full HD resolution, built in ClearMotivII Technology and has a dynamic contrast ratio of 100,000:1.

ViewSonic isn't new to touch technology. At this year's IFA it showcased its dual-booting Windows/Android ViewPad 100 touchscreen tablet.

You've got the touch

Although the monitor has been primarily designed for use with Windows, as it's 1080p, Blu-ray discs should look pretty good on it as well.

Just remember to wipe the finger marks off the thing first.

You might want to add a better sound system to the monitor, though, as its in-built speakers are a mere two watts each.

The ViewSonic VX2258wm is available now and costs £189.
