Cub Monitor Touch Screen. Here are three shots of a Cub monitor touch screen. The monitor sits in the frame, there are two leads, one goes to the disc drive power supply and the other goes to the RS 423 connection on the back of the BBC. Then all you need is a bit of software that uses it. It works by using an infra red grid shone across the front of the screen.
