Thumbs up Electronic Touch Triggers?

Just an idea that popped up in my head when I was getting on an elevator which had the up/down button be touch sensative. You know the ones that you dont really push in you just touch it with your finger and it senses the static electricity or something like that from your finger. I was wondering how difficult this would be to implement in a E-frame. I think it would be pretty sick to have no trigger at all and you cant get a shorter trigger than touch sensative.

Dan Voils (ActionJunkie) put a reed switch in his bushmaster and a magnet in the tip of his glove's index finger. He didn't even have to touch the gun. Just get the finger with the magnet on the tip within half an inch of the grip frame and the gun shoots. Very cool.

Those touch switches you're talking about don't have very good response time (in my experience), so on a paintgun you'd only get a few bps.

Also to be tournament legal there must be a actualy trigger. Are you use like a beam switch so all you have to do is break the beam.
later,

Well you could have like an angel trigger with the workings of an electronic touch inside. It would still be a trigger, and it would take you touching the to fire. It would still be a semi-auto pull with a trigger pull of 0.

ya, just have the trigger slammed against the frame so it cant move and then attach the wire to the trigger to detect the static electricity or whatever it uses to detect

Well, it's moot because it would still be illegal. The rules call for one shot per "trigger movement", a deliberate back-and-forth action of the trigger finger AND the trigger. If your trigger didn't move, it would be tournament illegal.

I don't know about that. I've seen angels with triggers set so short that there is NO noticeable movement of the trigger. You can't even feel the trigger move when you pull it. Hell, you don't even have to touch the trigger to fire it. Just tap the outside of the grip frame.

And those are tourney-illegal. Any competent reffing staff in the Nipple or the Millenium series would penalize you for having too short a trigger... there was a big debate on this over at the P8ntballer forums awhile ago...
