English: Eugene 'Gene' Mosher photographed by Barbara Mosher at the Atari Booth, ComDex, Las Vegas, Nevada on 17 November, 1986. Shown in the photograph is ViewTouch® a Graphical Touchscreen Point of Sale software running on an Atari ST computer attached to a 12" Atari SC1224 color display which he enhanced with a MicroTouch capacitance touch screen. A Star Micronics DP8340 printer is also shown at the top of the custom wooden enclosure. The ViewTouch® widget engine used to create the application is a very early direct manipulation interface.

In the row of widgets at the bottom of the interface are the first appearances and uses of the now ubiquitous 'Back' (at left), 'Forward' (at right) and 'Drill Down' widgets. The widgets above the bottom row are 'Tab' Widgets. These graphical user interface elements were subsequently acknowledged as universally essential and useful; each was included in Internet browser interfaces and graphical applications which later appeared in the early 1990's. These interface elements also appear decades later in all contemporary SmartPhone and Tablet interfaces.
