If you've been fruitlessly poking at your Raspberry Pi and hoping for something to happen, you're in luck: a touchscreen display is coming.
Ebon Upton, creator of the Raspberry Pi, recently unveiled a seven-inch VGA capacitive touchscreen display during an interview with TechCrunch's John Biggs, covered here by Natasha Lomas. The display is designed to be combined directly with Pi, resulting in a device that functions, while cumbersome and awkward, as a tablet. It'll also open up opportunities to create devices with embedded touchscreens which, given the current design, seems like a more practical approach.
During the same interview, Upton showed off the Pi-Top, a 3D-printed laptop chassis, including an integrated screen, keyboard, and touchpad, powered by a Raspberry Pi. It's currently part of an IndieGoGo campaign, but looks like another cool idea for the Pi. Check it out:
