The idea is great, and (I thiunk) not so much hard to do.
The project could be based on the GTA04 hardware, (because it can be
used with a larger screen, with higher resloution), thoug the GTA02
won't ba able to.
So it is only a problem of finding a new touchscreen, and a case (as
usual ,-) ).
It could be a good idea to ask to Dr Nocholaus Scheller for the screen.
