What makes a touch screen thing like iPod or iPad touchable?

How does it work? I'm just really curious. I know it has something to do with the electronic static wave things in your fingers but I still don't get it. Can someone please explain?

    Google it yourself..... seriously not hard.

    The capacitive screen in apple's and most company's smartphones use a digitizer which has it's own electrostatic feild. Because humans condict electricity, the tocuhscreen can measur echanges in the electrostatic field and feed them back to the cpu.

    The Resistive touch screen (found on the wii U, and many older touchscreen devices) uses a physical membrane which is physically pressed down onto a sensor to send the same message to the CPU.
