    Will resistive touch work. Although person also hit it with glove.

    SO I dont know it may break? Is there any way it can be made strong enough??

    Re: photocell and LED in row and column? How do you deal with two hits on the same column at the same time?
    Maybe pressure sensitive resistors.
    Maybe force sensing resistors

    I have tried using resisitive touch. But not much success. There is voltage change across x & y axis. But it need pressire to do that. A simple hand touch is not successful.

    Will try to use piezo & check

    It may not be critical at all.
