Toshiba brings multi touch technology for resistive touchscreens

Resistive touchscreens that respond to multi touch gestures are significant since the alternative -- capacitive technology -- is more expensive.

Toshiba has brought a new technology that combines the benefits of both capacitive and resistive touchscreens, while negating their limitations.

The technology was showcased recently at the Embedded World Conference in Nurnberg, Germany.

The touchscreens used in smartphones are generally capacitive, which allow dual touch gestures but do not respond to a pen, gloved hands or stylus. Resistive touchscreens do the opposite; they accept pen, stylus and gloved inputs but multi touch do not work well on these screens.

However, Toshiba’s touchscreens accept multi point touch gestures to allow users better control over their computing devices.
