The best FIpost channel ever! The only thing that's still needed for this touch-screen is a logo of your own. I think you should think of a logo and a brand name to put on your builds!

I think I would prefer better a brushed brass instead of shiny (but that's just my taste), cannot stand fingerprints, shine and grease spots that will soon start to show! You should start use the magnetic cables and plugs in your projects, they are dirt cheap but add a whole new level of reliability, coolness and easy to use on any swapping/detachable parts!

Fun fact: The battery he's using is from the SONY Xperia XZPREMIUM. A smartphone with a 4k panel. It's battery is easily recognisable by the characteristically strange capacity of 3430mAh. Also I have one of these :)

hi @DIY Perks, does my old monitor that i'm using for this project needs to be a touch screen in the first place? I'm curious how does the logic board converts a non touch screen to a touch screen

Just made up my rather 'crude' monitor from an old laptop. It's a laptop I found in a skip outside a house that was being renovated 6 years ago. I've kept the upper part of the casing and bought the correct control board for the screen (I've tested it with the VGA cable and it works fine). Just waiting for the delivery of the HDMI cable today so I can double my monitor real estate. But I want to eventually do it properly to have the nice aesthetics like this. Wonderful build.

I'd love Matt to sell some of his creations, or someone to build them and sell them from Matt's plans. I have watched this video a few times and built my own from wood, it was an old laptop though so screen wasn't that high quality. Would love to see Matt take this design one step further to compete with something like the NexDock

I've actually been looking for one of these for a while now, but I assume I could always build my own. I guess it's a lot easier to solder brass than aluminum - I've heard aluminum can be difficult? Although this looks great, I'm not sure I would like shiny metal around my screen ... I wonder if it could wrapped with a plastic "carbon fiber" wrap or something. Actually, before considering buying one, I *had* considered building one myself, but had no idea what to do for the enclosure. I assumed I could probably just modify the display assembly from an existing laptop ... but this solution works too. Though to be fair - there ARE premade screens like this on Amazon, for little more than the cost of just the screen + controller board (the one in this project seems to be about ~$200 CAD now, which is about the same as a "generic Chinese brand" 1080p USB-C screen already built on Amazon). The only thing is ... they seem to lack touch, as well as the audio being terrible on most from what the reviews say ... I'd love to be able to build one with decent speakers attached.

Matt one thing I can see being update is adding a circuit board or chip with antennas to make it wireless display and also the same to make it Bluetooth capable as well. Wireless in case you need to connect a device screen wirelessly in case you forgot a cord like hdmi cable in an emergency and Bluetooth in case you have speakers or headphones you want to use instead. Yes I realized you can add adapters but with the limited ports you may need them for other things like keyboard or mouse ect. This isn't a criticism because I find this awesome and amazing but just ideas and recently having friends who ran into similar issues. With them luckily I had my Google Chromecast Ultra to lend them so they could mirror their screens because they had no hdmi cables.
