This Bricklet is deprecated. Is has been replaced by the Multi Touch Bricklet 2.0. It is currently sold off with a large discount, but only as long as stock lasts.
The thing that is actually touched is called an "electrode". The electrode can be a cable, electrically conductive tape or a copper surface of a circuit board. Electrodes can sense touch through a thin layer of glass, plastic, paper or similar.
With the Multi Touch Bricklet it is possible to build custom touch panels by gluing a cover onto the electrodes.
