How Does It Work?

How do touchscreens work?

Touchscreens have become an integral part of our lives. Nearly every human interface system that includes a display has a touchscreen.

From smartphones to tablets and laptops, the ability to use our screens interactively has become the norm.

But how exactly do touchscreens work?

There are two primary types of touchscreens: resistive and capacitive.

Resistive screens require mechanical pressure to operate. These types of displays can be found in older style GPS units.

Capacitive screens, however, work by carrying an electric current across the top layer of the screen and measuring the change in electrical flow in the area touched.
