The reading game is about to change forever. Boston-based software developer Spritz has been in “stealth mode” for three years, tinkering with their program and leasing it out to different ebooks, apps, and other platforms.
Now, Spritz is about to go public with Samsung’s new line of wearable technology.
Other apps have offered up similar types of rapid serial visual presentation to enhance reading speed and convenience on mobile devices in the past.
However, what Spritz does differently (and brilliantly) is manipulate the format of the words to more appropriately line them up with the eye’s natural motion of reading.
The “Optimal Recognition Point” (ORP) is slightly left of the center of each word, and is the precise point at which our brain deciphers each jumble of letters.
The unique aspect of Spritz is that it identifies the ORP of each word, makes that letter red and presents all of the ORPs at the same space on the screen.
In this way, our eyes don’t move at all as we see the words, and we can therefore process information instantaneously rather than spend time decoding each word.
The game done changed. Try it for yourself.

This is probably the first thing ive sung on properly, I wasnt as confident putting this out as i usually am with my music, but luckily everyone recieved it really well. Ive Posted this everywhere else but on here, so here it is my cover of happy, with a rap remix of course
ok so Lorde and some guy went in the studio, and the guy remade the track royals by himself in a couple of hours, played the guitar in the melody of her vocals, sung the harmonies and then rapped over it. That ‘guy’ was me, and lorde wasnt really there or knew anything about it, but apart from that small detail it definitely happened: Take a look for yourself >
This is My first ‘Release’ under the name ‘Jovel’ and trust me, it wont be the last! i’m going to be releasing a FULL length track from my forthcoming EP ‘G.S.D’ EVERY week on my soundcloud, so make sure you follow me on there to get em instantly.

Week…erm..25 I think?
ANYWAY! this week i thought “FUCK IT! Im gonna do a refix in 1 take!” and the result is this cover I did a while back by my HERO jack white from the white stripes.
As I said, the ENTIRE thing was done in a single take, as a way of respecting jacks views about keeping music restricted and raw.
now grime and hip hop fans might not understand this AT ALL, but songs like these are a massive part of who I am, and seeing as these are My refixes not yours, you’re just gonna have to deal with it aint ya! :p
well thats all from me! I hope you all had a verrrrry merry christmas and I’ll see you wonderful people next week!
