Speed Reading

 

Those days of relaxing pool-side with a good book? Yeah. Kiss those goodbye. At least if you use the app “Spritz” on Samsung’s line of wearable tech. Spritz promises, through a clever mix of technology and deep research into how our brains work, to deliver reading speeds up to 500 words per minute. That’s over eight words per second, for the mathematically-challenged. Is this a good thing? Or simply something that will cause headaches, both literal and metaphorical. We’ll have to ponder that while we leisurely flip the page.
