Hopefully someone with a techy mind can answer a question i have about touch screens.

rather than the pressure of your finger. I can't remember any more than that, exept that people said it would be a more hygenic way of using a touch

Can anyone tell me how this works please? It's supposed to be a basic touch screen as far as i know, i mean all it is is a pub dukebox.
Is it just a case of sensors on the keys?
Thanks for any help.....it's just really been bugging me, especially after the thread about sensor touch screens.
