What if you could see through your iPhone like a heads-up display? With MegaReader you can

If you’ve spent any time walking and reading on your iPhone, you’ve got the bruises to show for it. It’s inevitable that—with your gaze focused on your device—you’ve run into a few friends, cars, and posts.

If only there were some way to see where you were going. Like if there were a camera that… hey wait a second. There is a camera. And Portland-based MegaReader came up with a really interesting way to use it. Providing a heads-up display for seeing right through what you’re reading.

What’s MegaReader? Well, it’s an eBook reader for iOS that has a [expletive deleted]-load of books on it. Because of that, folks wind up having it open quite a bit. Even while they’re walking.

“One of our users recently pointed out to us the risks you take when you walk and read,” said Patrick Thompson, CEO of Inkstone, the makers of MegaReader. “So we decided there and then that we would be the first company in the world to introduce a Heads Up Display screen, so people could rest easy knowing their loved ones were safe on the streets.”
