[prMac.com] Round Hill, Virginia - Transmutation Technology is a novel way to output textual information as a stream of characters. When letters are shown one after another, at a fast rate, that creates an effect of animation. In order to retain the cohesiveness, the letters within words shape-shift or transmute into each other. That, effectively, connects letters into words in the reader's mind.
Text Transmuter 1.0 is a free learning tool that you can play with just for fun. Observing a stream of moving characters can give a boost to your mind's development. Without any conscious effort, your mind will try hard to make sense out of that stream. Start at a slower speed and then increase the rate with the goal to be able to read at the speed of a conversational speech.
There is even an esoteric aspect to this technology. The messages displayed "in transmute" work on the same plane that Buddhist's prayer wheels and praying flags operate. The app transforms static characters, lined up on paper or stored in an electronic form inside files, into dynamicly moving information, i.e. into living words. That is, they are transmitted by the app and received by the higher powers :)
Released in "Educational" category in Apple's App Store recently, Text Transmuter made into "200 most popular educational apps" list in a few countries. The technology that does text "transmuting", has a potential to become a major breakthrough. Transmuting is the third way to output textual information after reading and scrolling.
The app has controls for the size, the speed and the color of the output and its background. You can output the text as a mirrored image and read it in a mirror. Text could be entered manually or selected from a library of phrases. The next app, based on the transmutation technology, is the "Alphabet Transmuter". It's release is scheduled for mid-March 2011.
