Touch screens have quickly become a key part of our daily experience with communication and internet activity. We use them on our smartphones and tablets. We use them at ATMs and grocery store card swiping devices. Even some large display monitors are touch sensitive. You can rest assured that if you need Los Angeles computer repairs the technicians will know how to handle these screens.
Some touch screens respond to direct contact with human fingers. Others work with specially designed styluses. They can be programmed to respond to specific gestures in specific ways. The varieties of interactions possible allow touch sensitive monitors and screens to be used in many ways other than simply displaying information. The screen can now be a direct tool for the user to interface with the computer system. From light taps to pressure sensitivity to many degrees, the technology for touch screens continues to improve with each year.
What Makes It Work
Touch screens work by having multiple layers in their construction. The effect of the touch on the surface generates patters of disruption of the electrical flow in metal layers between the glass and surface layers. Most touch screens have simple layering, so that the distinctions are touch or non-touch. But some are developed much more sophistication. Graphics tablets have been developed with over 2,000 levels of sensitivity, so that the system can distinguish between a light touch of the work stylus and a heavy pressure.
