Have you ever been in the middle of an important situation, and had an important text to send at the same time? Sometimes, texting can’t wait. If you have ever been walking and texting at the same time and tripped, ran into something, or made yourself look like a clown in some other way, you’ll appreciate Apple’s new idea.
On Thursday, the US Patent and Trademark Office published a new patent by the name of “Transparent Texting”. The new patent tells of a feature that would capture and display video images of everything around and ahead of you continuously using your phone’s rear facing camera. You would be able to text while seeing everything because the display would be transparent. You would literally be able to see everything in the background while you are texting away.
The transparent screen might also include the little bubbles that display your texts and iMessages so that you can see even more of the environment around you. The text of course, would not be transparent, so you will be able to read just fine.

This all might seem a little bit ridiculous to you, as it sounds slightly ridiculous to me. First of all, I do know and understand that sometimes there are very important things that can’t wait. But, I never thought that it would turn into this big of a deal. I don’t think that it is completely necessary, as most people have adapted pretty well and have the ability to text while on the move. And I don’t think that people will be able to pay attention to the video or “transparent display” while they text anyway.
Overall, it’s still a pretty neat idea. Even if it isn’t going to be life changing or anything, at least it will look cool and make you feel more important than you really are. Everyone needs a self esteem booster every now and again to keep us going.
