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
I agree with you: It may not be useful.  And the expense of such a bulky device would render it a little off its purpose and ease of use that a tester is looking for.

More sophisticated instruments like an oscilloscope is a possible user of touch screen control. In fact there are several touch screen controlled oscilloscopes already in the market place.

Above is a google search for them.  Some are very small and inexpensive; some are big, elaborate and expensive.
