Device for touching a touch screen? Answered

I need a type of solenoid/servo device capable of moving a few millimeters at a fast speed. I am building a device that will tap a touchscreen for me via an electric signal (In this case, and arduino.) they need to be relatively cheap and small. I will have four of them evenly spaced over four inches (They need to be no wider than an inch, would much prefer they be less than a half inch in width. Height isn't important, and length should also be under an inch.) They also need to be fairly weak, i dont want one of them punching a hole in my tablets screen by accident. Doesn't need to be controlled by PWM, either off (Not touching) or on (Touching) will work fine. Please do leave links along with the name of the device/part.

Apple Touch Icon

Could you include an Apple Touch Icon on the website? I know Instructables doesn't have an iOS app. Primary reason being that you want to focus on the website. I fully support that. I would like to add a shortcut to Instructables (my feed) on my iOS devices and I would like the bookmark to have a proper (Apple Touch) icon. Just because it looks nice and I think it would support Instructables' web app approach. Thanks.

Competitor's lost touch?

So I've known this for awhile and to be honest it doesn't bother me to badly but my Zip series is much more popular than my Competitor series. The first Zip has more views than my first Competitor which has been out for months, but I do realize the philosophy out with the old, in with the new so I could see the original Competitor collecting dust, after all, it doesn't even have a mag lock! Anyway the main reason I'm starting this forum topic is to find out what you like about the Zip series. Has it been the concepts I have been applying in each pump action model? Was it the styling, which was more spontaneous and sci-fi? Maybe it was a hidden preference for the ergonomics of pump action. The truth is, I don't know and I want you knexer's to tell me what you like or dislike about my Zips and Competitors. Using this information I will be able to build a better Competitor or maybe just refocus on building Zip4.

You can unlock it, but it still has the lines and the screen is still distorted. Can you tell me the physical problem and solution please?

Drawing With A Touch-Screen?

My brother loves drawing and he has a friend who has something called a bamboo pad.  It doesn't have a screen which is why I found it questionable.  So we thought we might look for a touch screen he could use.  We had very little luck finding one that seemed like it fit the purpose.  Even those bamboo peoples' didn't look like they would do anything other than lines.  So we have a question.  Is it actually fairly easy to use a bamboo pad, and if not, what touch-screen could he use.

Touch screen Keyboard

Hey :) i have a sweet idea of building a touch screen keyboard that's separate from the monitor. i kno their are already some on the market but it be way cooler if i could build one myself. after doing some research i found the easiest way with the most versatility would be to have a touch screen ontop of a display and have the display then attached to a chip which would relay the image of the custom keyboard. the keyboard then would be hooked up to the computer and would function like a normal keyboard but soundless. :D the problem in all this planning is 1 i don't know how to put everything together, even though Ive been reading up , my knowledge of hardware design is minimal and 2 i don't know how to write programs, but if its any consolation im teaching my self simple programming like C++ but i doubt that will help. anyways , any suggestions Thanks a million Justin

gentle touch activated sound?

I have a little toy that makes noise when you squeeze it that I want to give as a Christmas present, but tiny little hands have trouble doing the squeezing properly, so I want to do a little surgery on it so that the sound activates with just a gentle touch instead.  Such as if you flick it, pet it, pick it up... that sort of thing.  I know when I was little, we had a doll that was supposed to make noises when played with, but it was so sensitive that it would go off from just the blow of our AC.  My problem is, I've no idea what parts I need to do this.  Can anybody help point me in the right direction?  And I only have about a three inches to work in, so it needs to be fairly small. Thanks.

Tactiontape - Touch Sensitive Tape for Rapid Prototyping

Hi everyone, Tactiontape is a one-dimensional touch sensor that curves. It's designed to make building interactive physical prototypes easier, even ones with non-planar or complex surface geometry. It functions as a flexible potentiometer and uses a strip of graphite to express a linearly resistive electrical signal, one that corresponds to how far along the tape you've touched. Each sensor is hand-made using materials from an art supply store. Here's a demo: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0ggYn70TpZY For purchasing, photos, and more detail: http://www.etsy.com/listing/87989636/tactiontape-curved-touch-sensors-for

Shortcut issues on iPod Touch

I'm using new iPod Touch to browse the site (yay, Kitewife!), and I've discovered that the "shortcuts" tab doesn't work properly.  As soon as I tap the tab, the drop-down menu appears, but before I can select an option, the page jumps directly to the page for customising that same drop-down menu. This isn't a bug, as such, but it does reduce the functionality of the site on mobile devices, a that's a huge slice of the audience these days, on quite probably a disproportionate slice of the "first visitor" market. (I don't know if this is an issue on non-Apple devices, maybe somebody could check and add a comment?)
