Disclosed is a novel type of keyboard for touch screen user interfaces that is independent from the user’s hand (i.e., finger and thumb) placement, and does not require any knowledge of key location. The system measures a user’s thumb movement from pivot points of contact and the direction of the movement determines the key the user wants to enter.
