Touchscreens are visual outputs that can detect the presence and location of a touch within the display area, permitting physical interaction with what is shown on the display itself . Pointing at a thing, or touching it, is one of the most natural ways to select it (Fig. 10.1). Touchscreen is an electronic visual display device that the user can control through simple or multi-touch gestures by touching the screen with a special stylus/pen and or one or more fingers (Fig. 10.1). It is a means of capturing a human’s natural pointing instinct and using it as a mode of human-computer communication . Touchscreens are easy to use and require no additional work space and no moving parts such as keyboard and mouse system.
