The multi-touch technology is FTIR (technology to detect interference of total reflection,Frustrated Total Internal Reflection)using.

In short, the LED that emits infrared rays is hidden in the hole of the part fixed to the metal at the edge of the glass, and the infrared ray is totally reflected inside the glass and it bounces. When the finger touches the glass, the refractive index changes and it becomes impossible to totally reflect. As the camera detects the part where this total reflection is obstructed, it will detect by software.
