Third Place: ShapeWriter by Dr. Shumin Zhai
ShapeWriter is a revolutionary text and commands input method for touchscreen mobile devices. To enter text the user simply draws an approximate stroke gesture from letter to letter on a touch keyboard and lifts up to complete the word. The resulting trace is recognized as the intended word. For example a stroke approximately tracing F-U-N results in “fun”. Due to statistical pattern recognition, ShapeWriter’s intelligent algorithm is inherently error tolerant. Other close matches to the user’s gesture are presented in a suggestion bar (demo @ http://j.mp/4GzbzE).
More information can be found at http://www.shapewriter.com I’d be happy to write up more if you need.
