Can I use membrane keyboard by directly touching on the membrane layer?

What happens if I press on the membrane layer directly with my figners? Will I get shock or something funny happens?

Yep - you won't know what your going to get though - unless you have a VERY good memory (or touch type)
As an after thought you could do away with the rubber layer as well if you make up some conductive gloves!

Erm sorry, English is not my native language. What do you mean by that? It's a yes or no?
Yes - You could also remove the rubber cover and short across the terminals on the board with a short bit of wire or aluminium foil, say on the end of a glove.
It will work just fine and you won't feel anything.
