raspberry pi question

Has anyone used the touch screen interface with the raspberry pi?

I have a friend who is curious about building one of the old game emulators out of a pi and wondered about using it as a selection interface for the games.


There are several options, but two from Adafruit that stand out… one is resistive and the other is capacitive … I’d go with the capacitive only for that purpose… works so much nicer.


Make had an article last year about a Raspberry Pi tablet. I know that used a touch-screen. http://www.chalk-elec.com/?page_id=1280#!/~/product/category=3094861&id=14647624 <== This should have the parts to do it.
