For anybody wanting to jab rather than click on their iMac, Troll Touch offer a DIY touchscreen kit that adds a finger-sensitive layer to the front of the slick desktop system.  Available for both 20 and 24-inch iMacs, the new touch panels join a range that already caters for Apple's laptops and Cinema Displays.

Unfortunately the system doesn't support MultiTouch, which Troll Touch have claimed is due to OS X not supporting multiple cursors.  Whether that will change once Microsoft get into their stride with MultiTouch on Windows 7 remains to be seen.

It's not exactly a cheap option: the 20-inch kit is priced at $699 and the 24-inch kit at $899.  Troll Touch will also retrofit it for you if you ship your iMac to them, or alternatively sell you a new one with the touchscreen pre-installed.
