I had no problem keeping up with 500 words a second. You can try it yourself in the gif below. The obvious problem with Sprint is that a few seconds of distraction is enough for you to lose yourself in the text, but a technology like Google Glass could potentially detect when you’re looking away from the screen and pause the text automatically.
