Imagine you can write words by just sliding the pen across the letter keys that makes up words on a graphical keyboard. For example: to write "that" just slide the pen from "t" to "h", etc. and spell out the word (without lifting up the pen!). This is a video companion to full technical paper on shape writing I co-authored and is published in the Proceedings of the ACM UIST 2004 conference. Reference: Kristensson, P.O. and Zhai, S. 2004.
