CLAIMS

1. A computer system comprising:

one or more processors; and

one or more computer-readable media having stored thereon instructions that are executable by the one or more processors to configure the computer system to receive user input, including instructions that are executable to configure the computer system to perform at least the following:

displaying a set of characters arranged sequentially in a curvilinear or linear fashion such that any one of the characters in the set of characters can be identified for selection by substantially continuous and uniform user input from a user;

displaying a plurality of the characters in the set of characters in a fashion where each given character in the plurality of characters is displayed at a level of prominence determined by a probability that the given character is a next character in a string of characters selected by a user;

receiving user input in a substantially continuous and uniform fashion from a user to identify a character in the set of characters;

receiving user input selecting the identified character; and adding the identified character to the string of characters.

2. The system of claim 1, wherein displaying a set of characters arranged sequentially in a curvilinear or linear fashion comprises displaying the set of characters in a substantially elliptical fashion.

3. The system of claim 1, wherein displaying a set of characters arranged sequentially in a curvilinear or linear fashion comprises displaying the set of characters in a substantially rectangular fashion.

4. The system of claim 1, wherein displaying a set of characters arranged sequentially in a curvilinear or linear fashion comprises displaying the set of characters in a partially elliptical fashion along an arc.

5. The system of claim 1, wherein displaying the set of characters arranged sequentially in a curvilinear or linear fashion comprises displaying the set of characters in a first layer, wherein the one or more computer-readable media further have stored thereon instructions that are executable by the one or more processors to configure the computer system to display the set of characters in each of one or more other adjacently ordered layers where a layered character in each of the layers is displayed in proximity to another layered character in another layer based on a probability that the layered characters are likely to be adjacent to each other in the string of characters.

6. The system of claim 5, wherein the one or more computer-readable media further have stored thereon instructions that are executable by the one or more processors to configure the computer system to perform at least the following:

receiving a series of substantially similar user inputs; and

as a result, adding the layered characters in the adjacently ordered layers to the string of characters.

7. The system of claim 1, wherein displaying the set of characters arranged sequentially in a curvilinear or linear fashion is performed by displaying the set of characters in conjunction with a color spectrum such that at least two different characters are associated with two different colors.

8. A computing system comprising:

a user interface configured to display a set of characters arranged sequentially in a curvilinear or linear fashion such that any one of the characters in the set of characters can be identified for selection by substantially continuous and uniform user input from a user and to display a plurality of the characters in the set of characters in a fashion where each given character in the plurality of characters is displayed at a level of prominence determined by a probability that the given character is a next character in a string of characters selected by a user; and

a user input device configured to receive user input in a substantially continuous and uniform fashion from a user to identify a character in the set of characters and to receive user input indicating that identified characters are to be added to the string of characters in the user interface.

9. The computing system of claim 8, wherein the user input device comprises a gamepad comprising a thumbstick, and wherein the thumstick is configured to receive user input in a substantially continuous and uniform fashion from the user to identify the character in the set of characters.

10. The computing system of claim 8, wherein the user input device comprises a facial sensing system configured to receive user gaze input.

11. The computing system of claim 8, wherein the user input device comprises a gesture sensing system configured to receive user gesture input.

12. The computing system of claim 8, wherein the user interface is configured to display the set of characters in a substantially elliptical fashion.

13. The computing system of claim 8, wherein the user interface is configured to display the set of characters in a first layer, display the set of characters in each of one or more other adjacently ordered layers where a layered character in each of the layers is displayed in proximity to another layered character in another layer based on a probability that the layered characters are likely to be adjacent to each other in the string of characters.

14. A method of receiving user input, the method comprising:

displaying a set of characters arranged sequentially in a curvilinear or linear fashion such that any one of the characters in the set of characters can be identified for selection by substantially continuous and uniform user input from a user;

displaying a plurality of the characters in the set of characters in a fashion where each given character in the plurality of characters is displayed at a level of prominence determined by a probability that the given character is a next character in a string of characters selected by a user;

receiving user input in a substantially continuous and uniform fashion from a user to identify a character in the set of characters;

receiving user input selecting the identified character; and

adding the identified character to the string of characters.

15. The method of claim 14, wherein the set of characters is displayed in a substantially elliptical fashion.
