Projects / Dasher


Dasher is an information-efficient text-entry interface, driven by natural continuous pointing gestures. It is a competitive text-entry system wherever a full-size keyboard cannot be used--on a palmtop or wearable computer, when operating a computer one-handed, by joystick, touchscreen, trackball, or mouse, or when operating a computer with zero hands (i.e., by head-mouse or by eyetracker).
