Gene Mosher (born January 13, 1949 in Watertown, New York) is best known for inventing the graphic touchscreen point of sale computer and is a pioneer of human-computer interaction, including touchscreen interfaces, application-specific GUIs, direct manipulation GUIs, widget toolkits, widget engines and network computing.

Mosher is a 1966 graduate of Xaverius College in Borgerhout, Belgium and received a Bachelor's degree in Social Anthropology from the University at Buffalo, The State University of New York in 1972. As a restaurant builder/owner/operator from 1972 until 1984, Mosher first began writing point of sale software on his vintage Apple II computer in 1977 and pioneered point of sale software for the food and beverage vertical market to make practical the use of a PC as an order entry device (1978) and the printer as a way to communicate orders to the preparation areas of restaurants, namely kitchens and bars (1979). Mosher sold his restaurant business in 1984. He relocated from Syracuse, New York to Eugene, Oregon, where he began work on the first graphic touchscreen user interfaces and the first point of sale computer, using the bit-mapped graphical display and unified memory features of the newly-released Atari ST.
