designed for integration with operating systems, wearables, and online use, spritz has developed an application that allows users to read books at up-to 1,000 words per minute. the technology has been designed to enhance reading on mobile devices by streaming individual words using an ‘optimal recognition point’ (ORP) technique in a display known as a ‘redicle.’ this method essentially makes communication faster and more effective by removing inefficient eye movements associated with traditional reading. spritz streams content in single word bursts, aligning text with your line of sight, which as as result, allows you to read without having to move your eyes.

‘we’re reinventing the way people read by eliminating the obstacles associated with traditional reading on mobile devices,’ said co-founder and CEO frank waldman. ‘as smart devices continue to change shape and become increasingly smaller, spritz enables users to read comfortably and conveniently. our technology can be used to read emails, text messages, social media streams, maps or web content and can be integrated onto any mobile device – the options are almost limitless. reading has never been easier, more efficient or more effective.’  the first use of the system will be implemented in an app for the samsung gear 2 and galaxy S5 smartphones.
