That is for the cheap version.

The better quality one requires a nice IR Camera, a thick sheet of acrylic, IR LEDs, and some woodshop skills.

Is this a joke, or are you saying that a touch screen does nothing more than taking optical input?
I am 100% serious.
I have built the cardboard box version, and it worked (by which I mean in principle, it was so finicky I chucked the whole thing in the trash).

Oh, and the thing is Multi-touch.
I should mention as well:
1) The total price comes out to more than the Dell monitor linked above (I had it priced to about $500, not including a TV)
2) It is much more customizable, but requires a lot of effort.

It's something that i've been trying to justify in my head, great idea, i just don't see myself using it all that much with my current setup
I guess that "reasonable" is in the eye of the beholder.

I was saying compared to the price of other touchscreen monitors which are easily $500+
