I hope that as much effort is devoted to age testing the systems as is being devoted to the visual design. Too many such devices get glitchy (either failing to respond when intended or responding at unwanted times). Even direct input touch screens in commercial venues and copying machines get to the point that you must press the virtual button a line below the intended button to activate them successfully. If customers could be confident of reliable operation, these capacitive response devices could become very popular.

good point, DrQuine. Nothing worse than a laggy touchscreen. But I think touch integration gets better and better every year...
