Google Inc., the internet search giant, committed to deliver one of the leading products and services acquired San Francisco-based firm BlindType. Kostas Eleftheriou and Panos Petropoulos, both thinking of innovative ways to develop products which would make computers do cool things and have developed Apps such as iStream which have grossed 3 Million downloads, developed a technology which removes the need to type with an on-screen keyboard.
BlindType lets users simple start typing anywhere, with the intelligent technology sensing and recognizing their movements in order to translate them into text. Users now have the ability to write messages without having to look at their screens.
Google has made this acquisition due to Apple’s iOS-powered touchscreen devices, including the iPad, iPod Touch and iPhone is far superior over the one used by Android devices. This may allow Google to take a step forward in the relevant field. The acquisition is an advantage for those who frequently write SMS or email messages on their mobile phones and tablets.
