A different way of inputting text into computers. I am not sure if it was designed for accessability reasons primarily or as a cool toy, but the idea is that you fly through a space of letters to spell out words, and the bigger areas are the more probable letters next.
There are, however, a couple of disadvantages relative to normal typing. Basically it is significantly more cpu intensive, both on the computer and on you. I am not sure that I could think about what I was writing as well as enter it into dasher. Still, it is better than some other means of writing. [ http://www.inference.phy.cam.ac.uk/dasher ]
