    I suppose if you were raiding on wow and had to type really fast to keep up with the situation, this could be quite handy.

    instead you get to hunt for the word you intended to use. This would still suck for people like me who use a lot of jargon in their messages. I`d be adding new words for weeks.

    if you`re blind how are you going to know the layout of a qwerty keyboard?
    and this guy knows how to type with 1 finger way too well, sure after years of typing with 2 hands i can tell you where each letter is in relation to where i should be placing my hands, but how many people have developed muscle memory of floating over a keyboard with 1 finger to type??

    With my iphone I can type fast with one finger and without looking at the keyboard, without this program. So its very possible to learn how to do it and it`s really not that hard. No real muscle memory required.

    There are eye tracking and voice recognition programs in the works that could make typing obsolete.

    I`m skeptical. It looks like it would be putting in words you don`t intend a lot. For instance, you`d intentionally type in "Suicism" or "Handsompod" and it would assume that`s a mistake and put in "Suicide" or "Handsome". Also, how can the machine possibly know that your first letter is "W" if you type without the keyboard and adjust the "keyboard" to fit it? aren`t you just as likely to be doing any other character?

    OK I agree this is amazing, jaw-dropping etc, but any spelling mistake will mess it up: it`s only extremely tolerant to typing in the wrong place, as long as the pattern is the same. Typing an f in stead of ph for instance will completely change the pattern so the program won`t recognize it, ie fail caption and many comments.

    And I do suppose that it will regularly fill in the wrong word, especially short ones in the no-keyboard mode. `It` and `or` are completely the same except for (automatically adjusted) scale
