Some clarification: Our APR 1, 2004 demo utilized a touch screen
monitor. The calibration was imperfect, but it did work. It was
pretty accurate around the center of the screen but was a little off
toward the edges. So, we tended to use a mouse when showing others.
Fred spent quite a bit of time trying to get the calibration right but
we never quite found the formula. There was a support gap between the
screen maker and ELO (the company that makes the driver): They both
pointed at the other.
