It’s a Spritz to the Finish Line!

I was recently wasting my life on reddit and found a cool tool that allows you to read at over 500 wpm. The average person reads at about 220 wpm.  They have a little demo on their website (just click on the screen on the mobile phone) to get started.  I tried it out and it worked surprisingly well.  It is a sad fate I only found out about this program in my 4th year of university since it would be awesome for reading textbooks.

I wonder if I will retain the information when reading this quickly.  It also makes me feel like I need to glue my eyelids open because you could miss an entire word if you blink.  I am going to try it out for an entire article and see how it goes.

You can also get an extension in chrome that does something quite similar.

Or you can get it for Android here.

It is unfortunately reading week is over so I can’t make an interesting pun before heading out. Happy Reading!
