Summary
It seems simple: tap the screen of your smartphone to open an app, or swipe your finger across the screen to make the smartphone do something else. However, that type of touch screen has been years in the making and is a complex piece of what is now essential technology. Readers of this book will find out how layers of glass, metal, and LEDs work together to make a touch screen work. There are full-color images that augment explanations of different kinds of touch screens. Readers will be captivated by the many uses touch screens have in the world today, from controlling machinery in a factory to helping surgeons perform medical procedures
