Graphics, User Interfaces Now this is an interesting article, written by Lukas Mathis. He makes the interesting case that the gesture-based interface, as seen on the iPad and many modern smartphones, is actually more akin to the command line interface than the graphical one. He also offers a number of solutions for that pesky problem of gestures being anything but discoverable.

"help" typed at any command line is reasonably good at directing you in the right direction. Perhaps we need a question-mark gesture that displays a list of gestures with directions.

Great idea! and there's no irony involved.

You should have patented the gesture before telling us about it. I'm sure it would have been granted.

probably the concept of gesture is already patented.
