Is there anything that might be able to mimic a finger (by changing the capacitance of the touchscreen) without having to make much physical contact? For example, an electric field that changes the capacitance? Or something similar? (presumably it would require a power source)
I realize similar questions have been asked, such as this one: What is the iPod touch's screen sensitive to?
What I'm wondering is if you could mimic a finger with a electrically charged or powered device...?
