Touch technology is fast becoming the preferred user interface across all ranges of consumer and business applications. There are many touch-sensing technologies to choose from - some are better suited then others to specific environments. This paper compares these touch technologies by discussing the functionality, cost, life expectancy and ease-of-use.
Resistive touchscreens are becoming candidates for multi-touch applications ranging from cellphones to cameras to automotive GPS units. A new breed of multi-touch is enabling resistive to move into this space, which up until now, has been dominated by capacitive tech.
