Picture 53Why isn’t this a permanent fixture of the iPhone?

Thanks to the iPhone’s camera, Walk n Type lets you view exactly what’s in front of you as you walk,  with the text your typing layered on top of it. Clearly not meant for driving, you can of course use it when your walking, sat down or I guess watching a movie…?

Once you’ve finished writing whatever it is you might be writing (email, text, tweet), you can copy and paste that into the app of your choice. It works with anything that accepts copy and paste.

Genius. Now lets get Apple onto this asap.

Video demo below, more info here and the app is available for $0.99 here.

(Remember this is only available for the iPhone, not the iPod Touch as the Touch doesn’t have a camera)
