Workshop on making of touchscreen devices

This workshop is based on making of touchscreen devices using the concept of Surface Computing.A touch screen is an electronic visual display that can detect the presence and location of a touch within the display area. The term generally refers to touching the display of the device with a finger or hand.

Touch is one of the most powerful and inciting sensations that we can experience.Multi touch technology has been a path breaking new field of research in the domain of human-computer interaction and has been implemented in devices like the Microsoft Touch.
