It begins with a tweet and ends with a twisted ankle. Still, since everyone seems intent on continuing to stumble along looking down at their smartphones, Transparent Screen can help minimize accidents. The Android app overlays any screen content on top of a live image from the phone's camera, so users can keep their eyes on the display without bumping into others or wandering into the street. Transparent Screen is available for free at Google Play.
Awesome. I have up until now been unsatisfied with how long it takes me to run down my smart phone. This should certainly help! Thanks PopSci!
Would download except for the fact that it probably drains battery like mad.
Aside from the monstrous battery drainage, I am sure there will be other problems as well. Just as Googles Glass project lets you interact with your device while seeing the world around you, this app still takes focus away from the task at had. I can already foresee people walking into poles or into traffic using Google Glass and I am sure apps like this will have similar effects.
