Touch screen

A touch screen is a input device that allows the user to interact with the computer by touching the display screen.

Often this uses beams of infrared light[?] that are projected across the screen surface. Interrupting the beams generates an electronic signal identifying the location of the screen. Software interprets the signal and performs the required operation.
