Subtopic: gesturing up

Quote: pre-literates must use oral or gesturing messages that are short-duration and short-distance [»goodFL_1981]

Subtopic: goal crossing up

Quote: goal crossing may be better than pointing; continuous action; bi-directional; double crossing; multiple selection; like gesturing [»accoJ4_2002]

Subtopic: gestural writing up

Quote: use unistrokes for stylus-based touch typing; learned quickly, faster than printing, fewer errors, no eyes needed [»goldD4_1993]
Quote: Graffiti is similar to a keyboard; 97% accuracy after five minutes of practice; 97% accuracy after one week lapse [»mackIS5_1997]
Quote: Quikwriting is a cursive shorthand based on a pie chart; three times faster than Graffiti; easily learned [»perlK11_1998]

Subtopic: similar gestures up

Quote: found properties of perceived, gesture similarity using multi-dimensional scaling; built model [»longAC4_2000]
Quote: model of gesture similarity correlates well with data; e.g., bounding box angle, alignment with normal coordinate axes [»longAC4_2000]

Subtopic: pointing gesture up

Quote: multiple pointing gestures by the same subject follow different trajectories to the same point [»bernN_1957]

Subtopic: conditional gesture up

Quote: is there a workable gestural indication for conditional branching? if..then..else works well [»diseAA_1986]
