Marcel Fernandes Filho has recently set a Guinness Book World Record in New York by typing a 25 word “really tough” sentence in just 18.19 seconds by using Syntellia’s Fleksy keyboard.
In the recent times, SMS services has been replaced by the instant messaging applications. But still, the hard part of the work has remained the same and that is typing. Well, that is some speed in texting. A guy from Brazil broke the previous best timing set by another teen who also typed the same message in about 18.44 seconds.
It is really very interesting to realize that how can a human being type with such ferocious speed on a mobile. The statement that Marcel Fernandes Filho typed read,
“The razor-toothed piranhas of the genera Serrasalmus and Pygocentrus are the most ferocious fresh water fish in the world. In reality they seldom attack a human.”
This whole statement was typed by Marcel Fernandes Filho keeping in mind the exact punctuations and the capitalizations.
The Guinness World Record made by Marcel Fernandes Filho was achieved on a Samsung Galaxy S4 which had the Flesky Keyboard Application. Interestingly, it was Flesky who made Marcel Fernandes Filho to fly to the United States to participate in the chance to create a new Guinness World Record.
Considering the fact that the texting was done on a touch screen device, makes Marcel Fernandes Filho deserving a bit more credit for what he achieved. Generally, with touch systems, a faint touch of a whisker can also create some typing mistake.
Moreover, the Fleksy keyboard app maker Syntellia has gained some free marketing service via this Guinness World Records. As the company has already posted a YouTube video of his world record performance, we can make out the unique way of marketing its product.
