Touchscreen Monitors for studio use

Anybody using touchscreens in the studio? if so then what product?

i figured it would be kinda nice to lay a huge touchscreen down on the desk and operate my DAW with my fingers instead of getting the carp. with my mouse

The user interface elements of DAWs would have to be redesigned to accomodate the half-inch width of fingertips.

GUI elements are spaced too closely and too few pixels to work reliably. This includes toolbar buttons, menu drop downs, etc.

I suppose you could magnify the screen to make the screen elements "fit" the fingertips... but then you lose the overall real estate of the entire arrangment area.
