As demonstrated in this video, BlindType is some sort of keyboard replacement for the iPad, iPhone and presumably the iPod touch (neither are actually available at the moment but we are told to follow @BlindType on Twitter for updates) that allows flawless gibberish interpretation even when every character is wrong. It can apparently even deduce what you where trying to type even if you miss the keyboard entirely as long as you remain consistent in how far off you are and stick to the proper key layout. They call this adjusting to your “perceived keyboard” and it is some form of black magic.
I can imagine this technology coming in handy for those who might like to drunk text their ex-girlfriends. Finally those unintelligible keystrokes will be properly interpreted!
I’m skeptical that BlindType can really be as good as this video suggests. I’m also curious to see if the folks creating this technology have an equally slick solution for getting my BlindTyped text into the apps that I use every day.
What do you think of this witchcraft? Leave a comment below!
