Question
Dear Prof Cleggsan

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Multimeter

It may or may not be useful, but is it possible to design and develop Multimeter - Both Digital and Analog Range with Touch screen GUI interface ?.

Thanks & Regards,
Prashant S Akerkar

Answer
of course it is possible.  Just about anything with electronics and computers can be done now days.  The question is cost and will it be of use.

The above is an instrument of great proportions and will do everything a multimeter will do and then some.  It has touch screen capabilities as you will see in the video.  There are others.

But for the simple multimeter a touch screen is probably a little over the top.
