We will have to learn a whole new "language" of "gestures".

Do these systems have a "learn" function so it can record your imperfect 
gesture and map it to the correct one, for those of us that don't 
like mime-games?!

Gestures will become their own pictograms - "swipe like "this" to 
enter your pin...." etc....
