Touchscreens are well integrated into modern commercial landscape. One finds them on mobile phones, grocery store check-out counters, ATMs, airport check-in kiosks, gas pumps, and elsewhere. While resistive touchscreen technology still accounts for the majority of the touchscreen market, more manufacturers are employing capacitive touchscreens. Capacitive technology detects the capacitance that one's finger introduces to several wires under the device interface, and the user does not have to physically "Push" the button. Capacitive touchscreens are designed to work with finger, which brings a new ability to manipulate objects on the screen via hand and finger gestures.
