Step 1. Get a large touchscreen monitor. Connect it.

Step 2. Modify the driver so touches don't actually cause clicks or anything.

Step 3. Let it play a sudden, loud BEEP instead. Increase the volume for each subsequent touch.

Step 4. Lean back and watch people learn that you don't like your screen being touched.

    @linuxxx now that's against your touch my screen policy.

    Wonderful idea. 😂
    But, generally people don't touch touchscreens randomly often.

    Replace "BEEP" with "STOP TOUCHING MY SCREEN GRRRRAAAA" and it's perfect.

    My screen, my rules. Do not touch it, please.

    And you MUST keep the beep noise, as it can hurt some ears.

    You don't need a touchscreen. Just attach a 10M ohm res to it and the floor. Then it detects connections between the screen and the floor.

    Reminds me of this from the hitchhiker's guide to the galaxy:
    > [Arthur] reached out and pressed an invitingly large red button on a nearby panel. The panel lit up with the words *Please do not press this button again.* He shook himself.
