Touchco was a New York company that, according to it’s now closed website title, was developing “IFSR* multi-touch resistive sensors”. It has now reportedly ben bought by Amazon.
The impressive thing about this technology is this.
“Unlike the more common and more expensive capacitive touchscreens, Touchco-equipped screens can be used with a stylus as easily as a finger, are sensitive to different levels of pressure, and can detect an unlimited number of simultaneous touch points.”
