How about using a MEMs Gyro based Stylus for combined gesture and touch based inputs for smartphones ? The stylus would be connected to the cell phone and get its power and data through this connection. It can have a button which when pressed activates gesture mode and otherwise it defaults to a normal stylus ? The stylus could be used very effectively for fast data entry and gesture based mode could be used for zoom in / out, forward and back buttons functions on the browser, click and double click ? It would be built on the lines of the Nintendo Wii remote.

David Patterson, known for his pioneering research that led to RAID, clusters and more, is part of a team at UC Berkeley that recently made its RISC-V processor architecture an open source hardware offering. We talk with Patterson and one of his colleagues behind the effort about the opportunities they see, what new kinds of designs they hope to enable and what it means for today’s commercial processor giants such as Intel, ARM and Imagination Technologies.
