How To Read A 223-Page Novel In Just 77 Minutes
Spritz is a company that makes a speed-reading technology which allows you to get through a mass of text, reading every word, in a fraction of the time it would take if you were turning the pages of a book or swiping through a Kindle.
The basis of Spritz concept is that much of the time spend reading is “wasted” on moving your eyes from side to side, from one word to the next. By flashing the words quickly, one after the other, all in the same place, eye movement is reduced almost to zero. All that’s left is the time you take to process the word before the next one appears.
The company is selling licenses for other companies who might want to use the technology in operating systems, applications, wearables, and websites. Obviously, the tiny screen of a smart watch instantly springs to mind.
But the real revelation of Spritz is in trying it yourself.
Can we just take a second to talk about this in their FAQ section?
Who can spritz?
Everyone. DISCLAIMER: Ok, I guess technically not everyone. But… If you can read this you can spritz. We extend our apologies to babies, people who do not possess the ability to raise their eyelids, people who live in caves, people without digital devices of any kind, people who have had their digital devices taken away and been put in “time out” by mom and dad, sleeping people, zombies, cartoon characters, scuba divers, people without heartbeats (i.e. dead people) and, for some unknown reason, the entire population of tiny Craig, Colorado. Just kidding, that’s my home town and if I can spritz I’m sure they can too.
