Patent absurdity

It was only a matter of time!
Type-n-Walk is a new app that displays a transparent view of what is directly in front of you as you walk. This allows you to type (text) and avoid walking into (or driving into) those pesky trees, other rude people, or anything you can't just brush aside.  
This should save a lot of money for those municipalities that are installing special lanes on the side walks for people texting while walking.
As I refuse to own and pay for a cell phone that does more than make and receive calls (and not all that well here in the valley), I doubt I will have need of this app. I spend enough time in front of this screen and don't feel the urge to carry one around whereever I go.

  1. I absolutely agree although it makes me sound like a grumpy old man. I did send my first text of the year yesterday but it was out of necessity and cheaper than actually making a cell phone call. And I was not walking or driving while I did it. As long as we are paying some of the highest cell and internet fees in the world I will not be spending any more time than is absolutely necessary on a cell.

  2. Please tell me this is satire and not a real app.

    Shaking my head.
