The authors describe a new approach for data entry in wearable computing applications. A head-mounted digital camera records characters drawn by hand gestures or by a pointer on the forearm of the user. Similar to the Graffiti alphabet, the user draws each character in an isolated, single stroke. Based on their algorithm, a bank of finite state machines recognizes and processes the image's chain code to identify each hand-drawn character accurately.
