10 physical gestures that have been patented

io9 writes with 10 physical gestures that have been patented. It's interesting that input has been patented. I hadn't thought of that. As usual, most of these should have failed an "obviousness" test:
  1. Slide to unlock
  2. Multi-touch gestures for touchscreen or trackpad
  3. Drawing each letter of the alphabet using a single stroke of your pen
  4. Making hand gestures to move icons around on your phone
  5. Any set of personalized gestures you use to operate your Kinect
  6. Flicking your pen at something
  7. Shaking your mobile device
  8. Moving 3D objects in a virtual environment
  9. Two-handed motions
  10. Texting without lifting your fingers off the keyboard
