Texting & Walking: A Solution!

Admit it, you’ve texted while walking. I know I have. Found this awesome app for iOS/Android smartphones called Type n Walk, which solves the visibility issue.

The app uses your camera to project a real-time image of what’s in front of you, allowing you to see while you text. A nifty little tool that could save you from some embarrassing collisions or falls.

Granted, the app can definitely be improved (you have to copy/paste the message in order to send it out). But just think, in 5-10 years, we could be seeing heads-up displays projected from our phones.

I don’t know whether to be wowed or scared.
