I just learned about Spritz today. It’s starts out to be pretty mind-blowing. The technology is designed to feed text to the reader one word at a time in a manner that makes it easy to read (and comprehend!) 500 wpm, which is about 4 times faster than the average reading speed.
My first impression is that this would be game changing, but they only let you “spritz” for a few sentences at 500 wpm. I’m curious how this would apply to more complicated texts. I doubt I could Spritz a philosophy article that quickly and have a clue as to what was going on.
It’s a pretty cool piece of technology, and I can imagine it being great for long, easy-to-comprehend things that you know you should read but don’t want to set aside the time for.
