Microsoft’s newly announced Surface Hub 2 looks pretty awesome. It’s a giant touchscreen designed to replace whiteboards and projector screens. It also rotates on its wall mount, resulting in some fantastic GIF opportunities like this one:

Of course, there are two teeny tiny little problems with the Surface Hub 2. First, it won’t be released until sometime in 2019. Second, it’s going to cost a fortune. We’re talking thousands and thousands of dollars here — the first-generation Surface Hub started at $9,000 and went all the way up to $22,000!

If you’re looking for a similar solution that doesn’t cost as much as a car, check out the $300 Touchjet WAVE Virtual Touchscreen TV System on Amazon. It attaches to any TV up to 65 inches and connects via a standard HDMI port. Then a pair of cameras and some software wizardry turn your TV into a touchscreen!
