Capacitive Multitouch Displays

Good news for Apple, a patent application filed in 2004 has been granted by USPTO for their capacitive multitouch displays.

US Patent #7,663,607 describes a “transparent capacitive sensing medium configured to detect multiple touches” by way of two sandwiched layers of conductive lines hooked up to an appropriate circuit, and also covers a specific type of multitouch display with a similar two-layer capacitive sensor made of glass.

Apple’s touchscreen is still the best touchscreen in the market and now looks like they’re going a level up.
