New input method demo!

I watched the demo... Looks nice!

Maybe I have an interesting idea for you we could talk about...

I know that this is only a demo, but for the better productivity (less training needed) it would be nice if you would build up a "standard keyboard layout"....

I mean - first button means 
"Space" - then "left" (better a circle left - like iPods) jumps a step left (as long as I "draw" the circle) to "ALT","STRG" ,...)
If I raise the finger and then scratch up it goes to the upper next line "yxcvbnm,.-" where the 'b' or 'n' is highlightet".... That sounds easy I hope?! What do you think?!
Maybe then the capital keys could be used by one of the three starting buttons...

Possibilitys of selecting:
- pressing : select
- press and move up : go up one selection line
- press and move down : go gown one selection line
- press and move left : go left one character
-> press and move left in a circle left go left for as many characters as the circle "moves"
- ...

The keys in the currently selected row could be shown in a list right above the button...
(I use your ascii from the readme)

    |    *      *    |
  y x c v* bbb  *n m , . -   <<< scrolls through the screen with the currently selectet in the middle
    |SHFT* SEL  *CTRL|

Was it understandable what I meant??

What do you think of this way of typing?!

Best regards,

Or you can read the Readme, there's an ascii drawing and the two
paragraph helps you understand how it's used.
