An infographic shows the working of a touchscreen. The beautiful graphic illustration also describes the types of touch screens currently used in most of the devices like smartphones, tablets, televisions, etc.

Touchscreen is a user input device implemented in various electronic devices ranging from smartphones, tablets, televisions, computers to digital control screens installed car dashboards. This type of input device requires physical contact between its touch sensitive part and the hand of the user, more precisely, the fingers. However, touchscreen even works if you try to use it with your foot or nose. They just require the contact of a human body part.

Touch screens are of two types:

Resistive – Touch is detected by pressure applied to the screen by a finger or stylus.

Capacitive – Touch is detected by the charge present in our finger. A special type of stylus is required for such screens.
