Fancy reading at 500 WPM?
Seems to work, I can manage 500 wpm fine.
However, it would be no good for relaxing with a novel; I want immersion in the story and time to pick up my coffee/beer/wine/nibbles etc.
Would be useful for work stuff but I might feel that I was turning into a robot.
Did this a couple of weeks ago, found even 800 was fine, but suspect a whole novel would be very wearing.
Very cool. Not having to move your eyes and find the start of the next one must save quiet a lot of the time.
I think it'll be really useful for certain applications. As above though you wouldn't want to use it too long - more for short burst like reading texts or emails.
And reading txts while driving, no doubt
It's easy to read, but try remembering what you just read 2 minutes later.
It'll have a use if you've read something slowly, absorbing the information firstly, then want to have a quick read through again.(a speed control would be handy there)
But useless as a first read imo.
I took a speed-reading course and read War and Peace in twenty minutes. It involves Russia.
