It is undeniable that touch screen displays are found everywhere in our daily lives. The odds are that there is a touch screen device in your pocket or purse right now.
One important realization is that it is estimated that when there are typically four times as many germs to be found on a self-service touch screen device than on the average toilet seat, people are increasingly becoming concerned with interacting with public touch screens. In this day and age with germs such as MRSA, E. coli and C. diff, a growing number of consumers want to know that protective measures are being taken by touchscreen manufacturers.
A recent article on Digital Signage Connection explores the new partnership annouced by faytech and Kastus (source):
