Staff Writerabuzz with news of a speed-reading application, released by Spritz last week, which allows readers to significantly cut down the time they spend reading. With new and rapidly improving technologies being constantly introduced to the public, the question has become when the next ground-breaking application will be released, rather than if these technologies can actually be developed. Spritz, a Boston-based software developer that focuses on the integration of text streaming technology into modern communication, has been working in “Stealth Mode” for the past three years perfecting their reading technology. Spritz recently announced they would be releasing their speed-reading application on Samsung’s new line of wearable technology. Spritz works by manipulating the format of words so that the characters are better aligned with the eye’s natural motion of reading. According to Spritz developers, “with compact text streaming from Spritz, content can be streamed one word at a time, without forcing your eyes to spend time moving around the page.” As the software developer explains, when we are reading, the “Optimal Recognition Point” (ORP) is slightly left of the center of each word. The ORP is the exact point at which our brain unscrambles a string of characters. While there are a number of other speed-reading applications currently available on the market, Spritz’s technology is a game changer because it identifies the ORP of each word, while instantaneously marking that character red, and then aligning and presenting all of the other ORPs in the text at the same place on a screen. Spritz users will, therefore, not have to move their eyes even a single millimeter. Time Magazine has reported that when using the highest setting of 1000 words per minute on the Spritz, it would take a reader about 13 hours to read the entire Bible, and approximately 77 minutes to read Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone from cover to cover. It looks like “spritzing” will forever change the way that we read!
