Multi-Touch on Resistive Screens

Filed under Gadgets


Touch-screen phones existed well before the iPhone. The iPhone is different because it supports multi-touch. The iPhone uses a capacitance screen instead of the traditional resistive screen.

I assumed that a capacitance screen was a requirement to get multi-touch…until I watched this video.

Stantum is demonstrating a way to do multi-touch with resistive screens.

Advantages of resistive multi-touch screens over capacitance screens:

  • Cheaper
  • Works with *any* input: finger, fingernails, gloves, stylus, paint brush, etc.

This tech is a game changer…stay tuned.

Burn Disc Image

I found this today after I downloaded the Windows 7 SDK Beta. The download comes as an .ISO disc image file that must be burnt to a DVD before using.

In the past, you needed a separate utility to do this…but not anymore.

Just double-click on the .ISO file and you get the above dialog box…easy!
