Curved Touchscreen // Ron

Ah, the joys of having a band saw that works, and lots of scrap wood!!!
It didn’t take me more than about 30mins to find a couple sacrificial scraps, mark out a radius, cut them on my
band saw and find enough clamps to hold everything together long enough to see if it works…

I had to mount the LED array on the end with silver tape to guide the light into the edge
and figure out a way to clamp the end of the plexi straight enough so that the array fit…etc..
but this is what the camera saw!

a video…
so, in short, it works like a charm… the only thing that was surprising
was that as the screen starts to curve, it has to be very clean or those smudges really show..
(note the very bright smudge patterns at the bottom of the image..)
