Think you’re a speed-reader? There’s a new piece of technology that will allow you to up your game and allow others to catch up.
Samsung is about to release a new app that will let you read a book in under 90 minutes.
How does it work? The app allows text to simply flash rapidly on the screen. According to the article, “our eyes don’t move at all as we see the words, and we can therefore process information instantaneously rather than spend time decoding each word.”
Very efficient, if your heart can take it.
But what do you think? Do you think that this app would ruin the overall reading experience by rushing you through a book? Or will this enhance the reading experience by allowing you to absorb information faster?
See you out there!
If you’re a writer, write. And if you’re a reader, keep reading. We need you!
