Meet the Texminator. It’s an arcade cabinet that tests your texting speed. It was also inevitable.
Seriously now, my youngest sister has a phone she never uses – save for texting. LOLs and TTYLs have long replaced spoken word and the clickity-clack of her slider phone keyboard easily drowns out the family small talk at the dinner table during holidays.
It’s only natural that some entrepreneur would turn this phenomenon into a game and make a little coin off of it. The game features arcade and race the clock modes, as well as a two-player competitive mode. The joysticks are toy mobile phones. Obvi.
