This posting of an annotated bibliography on gesture user interfaces, on-line character recognition (a.k.a. dynamic character recognition, a.k.a. pen and touch computing), and related topics, including both hardware and software has been a continuing work-in-progress since the 1980s. I am posting it as a service to those with interest in the field. It may also be of special interest to anyone investigating any of the areas of digitizer tablets, touchscreens, character recognition, touch/gesture user interfaces, multi-touch computing, touch and proximity sensors, augmented reality, haptics, and context-dependent intrepretation of user input. It covers the time period from approximately 1891 (first electronic tablet) through 1914 (first gesture/handwriting-recognition input system) to the present day.

"Some drill and bore                       
 The solid earth, and from the strata there
 Extract a register, by which we learn,    
 That he who made it, and reveal'd its date
 To Moses, was mistaken in its age."

Du sagst, eine Hand wäscht die andere? 
... dann waren sie beide tief im Dreck.
