A New Way to Read? Check out Spritzing!

“How about reading one word at a time?  An article, “How Spritz Redesigned Reading, Letting You Scan 1,000 Words A Minute,” in Fast Company magazine, describes this new way of reading.  Check this out (you can actually read this way in the online article), and then come back, here, scroll down to “Comment on this article” and tell our readers what you think.

“When we read, our eyes move across a page or a screen to digest the words.  All of that eye movement slows us down, but a new technology called Spritz claims to have figured out a way to turn us into speed-readers.  By flashing words onto a single point on a screen, much like watching TV, Spritz says it will double your reading speed.

“Spritz Inc. is attempting to redesign reading — and renaming it ‘spritzing’ — by streaming one word at a time at speeds varying between 250 and 1,000 words per minute.  Words are centered around an ‘Optimal Recognition Point’ in a special display called the ‘Redicle.’  This method reportedly eliminates the time-consuming need to move your eyes across a page, which Spritz’s research suggests improves focus and comprehension.  ‘Atlas Shrugged in a day?  You betcha,’ promises the site.”
