How does an Multitouch overlay works? Answered

i'm a electronics enthusiast and would like to find out the technology behind such stuff.
they both say it works bad outside...so its probably Infrared based...
I was wondering if it is with some IR Leds and phototransistors or some kind?

Yes those systems are using IR LEDs and receivers. This will give you a better overview of how it works.
