Curse you April Fools, because I want this: TXT'N'WALK pipes in the forward-looking view of your phone's camera in a little PIP window while you type out a message. Good idea!

Somebody call Pocket Lint's bluff and develop this—it's on par with the Tauntaun sleeping bag for yesterday's prank products that should be produced immediately. Oh, the forehead-to-lamp-post collisions that could be avoided! [Pocket Lint]

it's kinda funny, but the little picture would only be useful if it was facing forward... at which point your view around the cell phone would warn you about what's coming.

I mean, the problem with hitting things while reading or texting is that you're looking down to see your gadget. Thus, your vid is gonna be pointed at the ground or slightly forward.

I suppose if you had a camera that could point forward?

Or, you know. Look up occasionally.
