Texting Walking

The next time you see a passer-by entering a text message while walking, do not rush to take it for the patient. Perhaps it uses a custom application that reduces the risk of a collision with a lamppost or a dip in the icy channel .

Just working on such a project researcher Hinkapi-Ramos Laboratory of Human-Computer Interaction at the University of Manitoba (Canada). He developed the system uses a smartphone camera to detect obstacles and display warning messages before the user, keen set of text messages on the go, get a bump on his forehead. Software CrashAlert for the Android operating system to safely move around the city without taking your eyes off your smartphone.

The author hopes that he developed technology will help reduce the number of accidents related to sending text messages while walking. A prototype has already been successfully tested. The work will be presented at the conference on human-computer interaction, which will be held in May this year in Paris.

The prototype CrashAlert is a 7-inch tablet computer from Acer Microsoft Kinect device on the back – a rather simple and inexpensive way to equip mobile sensor depth.

Tests have shown that users change the direction of the movement for up to two meters hurdles, not looking at it from a favorite game or set a text message. According Hinkapi-Ramos, CrashAlert application helps to better orient themselves in space, since warns danger of collision with an obstacle ahead of the user.

Currently, the developer is working to improve the software, trying to make it the most comfortable way for the integration of mobile devices.

The main thing is that the application CrashAlert completely disconnected us from the outside world. After all, in life anything can be.

Meanwhile, Google has already think about the fact that to do with the personal data of users after death.
