The History of Touch Screens

E.A. Johnson invented the TOUCH SCREEN in 1965. He created it in The Royal Radar Establishment in Malvern. E.A. Johnson’s process was only able to handle a single touch at any one time, far from today’s multitouch screens. It had other limitations, too as it could only register a touch (or not) – i.e. there was no sense of pressure, which arrived much later on.
