DIY - Converting an X230T into an External Touch Monitor

I recently watched DIY Perks tutorial on YouTube (LINK) and thought it could be really cool to remove the monitor from my no-longer-used ThinkPad X230 Tablet laptop and convert it into an external touch monitor. Following their suggestion to look for a 'controller' on eBay I couldn't find one that could be usable for both touch and VGA functionality.


Would anyone have any ideas on how this can be achieved?


Thank you!

Re: DIY - Converting an X230T into an External Touch Monitor

Hi nicknars, welcome to the community,


Did you try searching in the links in the description in the video?  There's about 10 pages worth of boards in each link, although I didn't see any that would support a touchscreen.  I would think that supporting a touchscreen would take a more involved board than what the seller has available. The first step would be to find a board that just supports the screen itself, then go further to see what would be needed to support the touchscreen.
