Kind of cool, but is there a way to make this work so that your screen doesn’t get so greasy?

That is a hard problem to fix, I typically use microfiber cloths and damp them with a bit of water, the prints come right off! :smile:

Hm, I hate wet clothes, though. Do you mean that your shirt cuffs wipe the screen clean as you move your hand across it? I’m a bit confused.

I can’t see the point of this as all my devices are touchable by default. I just tied again this morning and I can touch all of them.

Your code would be more impressive if you could make it so that no one could touch my device.

It worked great on my 24" HP screen, though the cat think it’s now his, as I was testing it with a mouse simulation. A bigger problem was that it seems to have disabled my iPad. Any suggestions?

This will be great for my laptop. I always have trouble using the touch-pad, and this will save me having to plug in a mouse. Great work, @cpradio.

I’ll add a toggle for that on the next release.

I’m working on a jDog library that may help here.

They release updates pretty much daily, as they don’t want to become out of touch. Lol, haha, I’m so funny. :stuck_out_tongue:

I was curious as to if this is relevant anymore. So I looked up the site on my phone and this is what I was graced with. Can’t post pics on my phone but it is a desktop website.

Does that not mean the same in the US as it does here?
