CLI (Command Line Interface) = (Think textual, such as the command prompt or DOS)
GUI (Graphical User Interface) = (The Windows UI)
NUI (Natural User Interface) = (Think of physical interaction with a GUI)
OUI (Organic User Interface) = (Spend some time researching here)


This 4 player game has some serious potential.

The last time I decided to highlight multitouch technology was when I mentioned the finger tools concept by Matt. And there is a Touch Notation abstract over here.

Today I found a DSL project “TouchToolkit“.

name: DoubleTap

 Touch state: TouchUp
 Touch limit: 1
 Touch step: 2 touches within 1 sec
 Touch area: Rect 50x50 including last 1 touch within 1 sec

The question is do we really want to express touch gestures from a text file. What if we would want to record touch simulation and give it a name.

With JSC the developer would be able to apply this recorded gesture on all platforms supported by jsc. More details on that soon enough.

    Best regards
