Hi All, Please excuse my ignorance! :)
I'm a researcher at the Human Media Lab at Queens University in Kingston, Ontario, Canada. We are working on a project, that involves a flexible Zytronic Touchscreen and an Android cell phone. I need to interface the screen with the phone. Unfortunately Zytronic only supports Windows and Linux, and to top it off, even if I could get the touchscreen to work with Android, I'm already using the USB port to output to HDMI.
So I need to come up with a solution that involves connecting the touchscreen to a Linux device, and then communicating the x-y events from Linux to the android device.
Also, size is a factor. So that's why I'm looking at Gumstix. Oh yah. Time is also a problem. I need everything in place for February 1st.
Connectivity between the Gumstix and Android will be done using Bluetooth or 802.11, and I need a USB OTG/Host connection to connect to the Zytronics controller.
So, from the product page, it looks like I'll need a Tobi Expansion board, and Overo Air or Fire board, and the relavent connectors.
Am I going on the right path? Could you give me some assistance here?
Time is of the essense, and I'd like to order something in the next day or two.
If a phone call would be better to discuss, let me know, I just need to get something going. :)
