Interactive touch – how to communicate with the device?
Touch panels are now one of the most popular „middle man” solutions when it comes to interaction between a human and a device placed in a public space. They are pretty much everywhere now – whenever we are buying a ticket for a bus or train, ordering lunch in any fast food joint, withdrawing money from an ATM, picking up a package, or paying for groceries, there is probably some kind of touch panel that makes it possible. What makes them still growing in popularity?
