BlindType – Touch Type with no Keyboard

at 11:51 am. Filed under Complex Hacks, Cool Gadgets, Crazy Hacks

BlindType is the coolest typing aids I have ever seen, and we have seen our fair share of crazy typing systems. I don’t do much mobile typing, I have tried the T9 predictive text entry system and hated it. I use an iPod Touch to view emails when not in the home office and unless the reply can be very short I tend to wait until I am at a real keyboard to answer. I can see this application changing that. The only reason I hate typing on the Touch is because the keys seem to be too small for my fingers and I spend too much time backspacing and correcting mistakes. With BlindType I could keep typing and it looks like BlindType will magically figure out what I meant to type. It’s sure to be a hit when it’s available. I wouldn’t be surprised to see one of the big players buy them out to be able to use the technology exclusively on their platform.
