I am working on the thread, 'hover based writing for touch surfaces'.

Any initiation in terms of pointers to great (hopefully conclusive)
research, experiments, and articles will be great.

Sincerely,

Kunal Kapoor.

I can't speak to any research on the topic, but this is one of the main
reasons I never bought a tablet computer (even though I really like the
concept). I found it very unintuitive to have the "pen" start "drawing"
before it touched the screen. I've seen the same behavior on drawing
tablets. I never figured out if this is an artifact of the technology being
used or a purposeful design decision.
