Still Tap To Type? Just Swype!


Reacting to people’s desire to have quicker method in typing, a group of people has tried improving it. And now once again there is a new and faster way to input text. Swype. What is it? What kind of thing are we offered now? It is the technology that allows you to type without even lifting your finger off the keyboard. Neat, huh?

Moving on from normal keyboard/keypad, touch screens (tap-to-type), now we can write word with just one continuous motion. According to swype’s website:

Swype provides a faster and easier way to input text on any screen. With one continuous finger or stylus motion across the screen keyboard, the patented technology enables users to input words faster and easier than other data input methods—at over 40 words per minute. The application is designed to work across a variety of devices such as phones, tablets, game consoles, kiosks, televisions, virtual screens and more.

You can see some references:

Interested? Well, at least I am. The need of faster communication has made people inventing new technology now and then. I can’t wait to see if human can communicate with just thinking about it (just make sure people can choose what to tell and what not to). I believe biomedical engineering has a big slice of this – aside from telecommunication engineering 🙂
