Masters Thesis Student
I am currently doing research for and writing my Master's thesis at i10.
The title of my thesis is "HandWrite - A text input technique for multitouch tabletops using hand gestures"...
Ultimately, the goal of this project is to determine, whether or not a newly developed text input method should be preferred over text input via keyboard.
The idea behind our alternative input method is quite simple:
We will take a fairly intuitive text input system with an alphabet that resembles regular handwriting. A well known example are the stylus based alphabets used on PDAs. Next we will adapt this to multitouch-surfaces and, instead of a stylus, really use our hands...
