Yeah! It's a Cintiq 21UX. I do a bit of illustration/animation, and I have some RSI/muscle tension issues in my arms. The Cintiq is FAR more ergonomic than using a tablet. My roommate actually owns it, but we're working on some video game development and I'm kinda the lead artist for what we're working on so I get the honor of using it, currently

since its an all computer rig you can try something like the sealed alpair-5 pushed to 20hz flat, to see where the chr-70 can arrive nearfield... there is a thread here explaining how to get powerful VST equalizer under win and foobar
Ooh, yeah, I remember reading that thread awhile back! I will indeed have to give that a shot!

ps. are you using a right-handed mouse with your left hand?
Yup! I use it in both hands. I have a second mouse that sits to the right, too. I like to switch back and forth as my right arm otherwise gets way too tense and painful if I'm using it all day.

It took a little getting used to, the left handed mouse thing, but it's not so bad for just basic clicking around. When doing serious work and/or gaming, I swap to right hand

Those monitors are very nice. I've sold a couple to clients who really like them.

if you have problems with foobar or sourcing the components PM me, if you'll test it i'll be very curious at what the chr-70 can do.

also let us know when the game is ready!

you can probably do it in the less time than i spend to come up with a speaker built (which is still an unknown span of time, now running more than 8 months from the day i ordered the drivers )

UK artist builds DIY Wacom Cintiq tablet for under $200 -- Engadget

Nice tablet, I'm a computer graphic designer and have used the cintiq a few times , wish I had the funding to own a 21U but at the moment I don't. It will be nice when these type of input devices are available at reasonable prices to the general public. I await the results of the miliFonken and once again cool tablet.

I'm thinking that an appropriate piece of software could change the ipad into a budget version of the cinq

Not so much. It's a very very different technology.

Well, let me elaborate on that. Any tablet PC or touchscreen can be used for basic drawing, but there are specific advantages to certain technologies.

The technology on the iPad is the same as on most touch phones these days. It uses the specific capacitance of human skin to determine where you're pressing. A human finger is not very accurate, not to mention you can't see what you're drawing on as it's obscured by your finger. There are special styluses that work that are designed to mimic a finger, but there isn't any pressure sensitivity, which is one of the biggest meaningful features of a drawing tablet. The benefits of drawing ON the screen are not so great that they overcome the benefits of the accuracy and pressure/angle sensitivity of a drawing tablet. Instead of spending 400 bucks on an iPad, you could get a nice large Wacom tablet and just use that.

The wacom tablets use a circuitboard the emits an electromagnetic field that extends an inch or so from the surface of the tablet. The stylus is a very sophisticated thing that has the pressure sensitivity built into the pen itself, and it powers itself using the EMF from the tablet, so there are no batteries involved. It then transmits pressure information back to the tablet, and the tablet calculates it's position based on it's location within the field. It can do this with insane sub-pixel accuracy. Crazy crazy stuff!

Trying to use a Wacom drives me crazy. Some of my customers won't use anything else.

Default mMarS - almost done

Hey folks, here's my effort - using Dave's splendid mMarS design:

Click the image to open in full size.

Did these as a practice build before trying some newer wall-mounted designs. Terrible iPhone pic, and currently only finished in primer (not sure what final colour to go with), and lacking stuffing, but sounding good nonetheless!

Powered by my t-amp, no filter, used 1/2" roundover instead of flat bevel due to lack of table saw.

Thanks to all who've contributed to this thread - it's a great resource!
