I think some kind of UI that acts like the mezzo interface with active corners
(debian package who dares porting it?)

text input based on most common words, I have seen this about 10 years ago
the letters flow from right to left and the most common words/letters
appear in front of you, using the stylus it is still possible to move
up or down to follow a different input path and if the words appears
just as you liked you can move the stylus to the right to make the
letter appear faster. I will try to find a demo online.
