It can be even more complicated. Your finger probably is one half of the capacitor. The electric field between your finger and the capacitors under the glass probably causes them to charge or discharge and thus we have tiny currents in that capacitor network that can be measured. For example towards the sides the capacitor 'plates' opposite your fingers is smaller, making the total capacity smaller and the touch panel less sensitive there.

Then your glove comes into play. We are talking about very small capacities here and it also gets less when the distance between your finger and the matrix under the glass is increased by the thickness of the fabric of the glove. Ahh, the dielectric properties of any material between the 'plates' of a capacitor also have influence on the capacity.
The language is JavaScript. that of Mordor, which I will not utter here

This is Javascript. If you put big wheels and a racing stripe on a golf cart, it's still a f***ing golf cart.

"I don't know, extraterrestrial?"
"You mean like from space?"
"No, from Canada."

If software development were a circus, we would all be the clowns.

When building an application, when is the most important time to consider the User Experience?
They are the ones we write code for, right?
