The Tablet Mac Project has produced a very interesting gizmo, that you can see below. Using an old MacBook, a brand new Apple tablet was created. Afterwards, the creator of this gadget Frankenstein, found a 13.3 inch resistive touchscreen, a new battery and cables for backlight, video out and iSight.

The project also involved using a special app and a script to support the touchscreen keyboard.
