BlindType Acquired by Google!

Been wondering what happened to BlindType, the keyboard company thats demo videos took the world by storm?  They were hiding in a room secretly negotiating terms to a deal with Google it looks like.  The company announced today that the search megatron has acquired them…

We are excited to announce that BlindType has been acquired by Google!

We want to thank everyone for their overwhelming support and positive feedback.
We know that typing on your mobile device can be a frustrating experience, which is why
we’ve worked hard to make touch typing easier and faster than ever – the way it should be.

We’re excited to join Google, and look forward to the great opportunities for mobile innovation that lie ahead.

The BlindType team

If you aren’t familiar with BlindType, just understand that they created a keyboard technology that lets you type messages without being even slightly accurate.  You can essentially type blindly and still get the results you intended.  A few videos of their keyboard in action circulated a couple of months ago and people were instantly blown away.

BlindType in action on Android:

So does this mean BlindType will be included in future Android builds?  Wouldn’t that be amazing.
