If you haven’t seen this video by now you are either Amish or….well, you’re probably Amish. And if you’re Amish, how are you reading this blog?
The thing is, I’m sure this happens nearly every single day, at malls all over the country. In fact, I think I’m probably going to start hanging out at my local mall with my phone poised and ready to record some text engrossed teenager taking an unplanned snorkeling lesson.
My guess is that the Megareader app was designed by someone who suffered the same fate as the girl in the video. It is for the iPhone and is similar to the Road SMS app available for the Samsung Galaxy S line of phones. Essentially it utilizes the video camera function of the iPhone to provide a heads up display while texting. Basically your phone appears to be ‘transparent’ so you can see what is in front of you while texting.
Just in case you don’t have a Galaxy S phone or am iPhone, we would recommend getting an Otterbox cell phone case, just in case you fall into a well or walk off the end of a pier.
