1  Screen Tablet malarky / Heyaaaalpppp / Re: Different approach on a DIY Cintiq on: September 16, 2012, 12:36:47 PM
Thx a lot for the quick reply.

I'm not gonna go through with this, I simply dont have the technical baggage. My respect goes out to the ones who do have the balls and the brains.

Instead I bought a used Cintiq 18sx on Ebay. It's a very old device so it's also a bit of a gamble. Once I've got it I'll let you know how it worked out for me.

Hi Y'all, I'm thinking about creating a "Do-It-Yourself-Cintiq" (Duh).

I've been thinking about it a lot and since a few days I have this crazy idea: I want to buy a resistive touch screen with touch sensitivity but no pressure sensitivity. Like for instance the Iiyama T1731SR-B1.
I'd like to combine this screen with a cheap pressure sensitive stylus, but I am in doubt whether this is possible or not.

I'd like to know if there is a tablet that transmits it's pressure signal by radio, in other words: you receive a pressure signal when you press the nib and your stylus is not near the tablet.
The Wacom tablets only send their pressure signal when you are hovering above your tablet, so they aren't an option. I'm wondering if any of the cheaper tablet brands e.g. Genius, who use different technology (AAA battery in the stylus) would offer me a solution to this problem.

If there was a cheap tablet that did not send their pressure data through the tablet, creating a DIY cintiq would be a lot easier.

What do you think? I appreciate your help and other suggestions to make this work.
