So thank to Xetrios, who showed me the original video of someone who did this mod for CES i think it has been stuck in my head and i decided to go for it LOL

The end goal for this mod is to have a touch display completely separate from my pc, to do this i am going to need to get a different display and a touch panel along with a raspberry pi and preferably linux if possible so that i can use it as my local development server :P

the proto typed worked quite well with just parts that came out of the monitor i re purposed :P

 

here are some pics i took of it working so far.

below you can see the power supply and video input from the monitor :) ( i gotta find a way to put them inside the case or something.)

so after realizing that there is not enough back lighting i went on amazon and ordered me up some RGB LED strips,

now for the transparent effect to work there has to be enough back lighting and since light is reflected back off of a white background better then a black background i have decided to void the warranty on just about everything in my pc :) and do this!
