touch screen

 Anyone remember a Framingham, MA company from back in the CRT-era (90's) 
that had the novel approach to making touch screens that used a force 
sensing platform under the monitor? It had a name something like 
"forcex." They seem to have disappeared. 

Given today's standardization on LCDs with VESA mounts, it seems like an 
ideal market for this kind of a design. Granted, such a scheme couldn't 
handle "multi-touch" (using two fingers on the screen), which is 
becoming popular these days, but it would still provide a fast and 
inexpensive way to add touch capability to any LCD display without 
compromising the image.
