So, I've started gestures a short while ago, using this site's wonderful tools. I like to get the tool running on my phone or laptop and doing the gestures on iPad using 53 Paper, or just good old sketchbook with ballpoint pen. But I was wondering if you guys have any tips on doing them viewing the tool and the gestures on the same screen ie. the laptop's screen.
I'm using a touchscreen notebook, without a tablet (but I'll get one by the end of the month -yay-) and windows 8. I'd also like to use SAI to do the gestures, and a stylus.
Another approach with a laptop is to plug-in a second screen.
The price for a new 20" monitor is under $100.
Garage sale / Thrift shop prices should be in the $20-30 range for one in decent shape.
[Your bargaining mileage may vary.]
An old [and 'dumb'] flat-screen TV usually has a VGA input -- DVI / USB / HDMI if you're lucky.
Plug the old TV into your laptop and, voila, you have a 'smart' TV.
uhh... it IS important to make sure that whatever connection the second screen needs also works with the laptop.
[This is the embarrassed voice of experience speaking.]
