Touch screen

Touch screen is an input device that allows users to execute commands by touching a specific location on the screen. Touch screens are popular, easy to use, intuitive, and inexpensive. They are used in fast-food restaurant, video stores, and entertainment parks. For example, at Disneyland, visitors can get information on various entertainment programs offered at the resort by simply touching a menu on a computer screen.
