Does anyone have any ideas on how I might obtain (build or purchase) a
surface that will detect hand/finger contact?

We are preparing a study involving upper extremity movements (reaching to
touch a target) and need to detect when and where contact was made with an
inclined table surface.

A grid would be ideal, but an acceptable alternative would be discrete
targets that can detect contact.

ANY ideas in this regard would be greatly appreciated, including names of
catalogs that might contain useful components.
