Tired of moving your eyes like a sucker? Well good news for you!

You can go to the website and click on the phone screen to try up to 600WPM, which was still very natural and comfortable to read.

I actually really like this and hope they end up making a thing with it.

What do you think pit?

It gets to a certain speed where I can read the words, but comprehension/context disappears.

I don't like it.
#3
What if you do that thing where you read a sentence but didn't process it and you have to wait for it to scroll back around a second time?

Seems rife with potential to insert subliminal messages.

I read close to 600 wpm anyway I've read tons all my life and honestly don't mind losing time because of it.

However, this does look really intriguing, but what if I want to go back and reread a passage?

This is a cool concept but I don't see how they're going to change 15% of the world's textual content to this by 2016. I didn't look on the website, but I could read the 250 wpm thing you posted, but I started to struggle at 350 wpm.

Awesome, but not perfect. It needs some kind of built-in "blink" function. You will miss like 3 words in the time it takes to blink at 1000+wpm.

If you were in a mature, rational relationship you'd know it's time to move on.

This takes the enjoyment out of reading, but I guess if its like a textbook for school or whatever then this is useful

I would like the time I spend looking at a screen to be spent more efficiently looking at one point on that screen.

On the "The Science" page of their site I read most of it at 450 wpm - then changed it to 500, 550, and finally 600 (the max it would let me). I don't know, it's cool, but after a while I started getting bad tunnel vision and kinda uncomfortable. And since I couldn't remember what I'd read after going over 500 wpm I found the spot I lost it and read it normally and just normal reading felt weird for a second.

I don't know, I don't think I like it. I'm a pretty fast reader anyway and I didn't really like the extreme tunnel vision.


I do see this being cool for text messages on a cellphone. Imagine getting a text and reading the message in a glance.

edit: I mean like a one or two sentence long message, not something like "hey, what's up?" obviously.

man screw that, i concentrated too much on it, dried out my eyes then had to blink too much and missed words. Do not want.
Make the field bigger have half a sentence in there or a full one and just scroll the whole lot would be better. The skip back would also then be more useful and not time consuming going through each word/half word.

Hacked it up to 1000, still too easy

I like, 500 wpm is easy right away for me.

Now write me some porn, I'm in a hurry.
#37
yeah 600 is e z

I think this would be a lot harder if they were words that'd be in a book though too. These are very basic sentences and words.

I was thinking the same thing. I got to stop and look up words all the time.

An easy fix would be a button press that pauses it and brings up the text in regular move-your-eyeball mode with the spot you're at highlighted.

Well maybe it's just me but how actual authors word their sentences can confuse the shit out of me and I stop understanding without realizing it and eventually I gotta reread it all again

That would be worse for this
