With those pesky laws limiting the places you can text (who needs to watch the road, anyway?) the Samsung App store has capitalized on the one activity still unregulated for texting multi-taskers: walking.

‘Road SMS’ for the Android is a clever way for Samsung to keep your phone permanently glued to your hand by acting as your eyes. It uses the phone’s camera to provide video in the backdrop of your message so you don’t do something really embarrassing, like walk into a pole or (worse yet) some other person.

Unfortunately, the app doesn’t have provide a 360 degree view, and so you’ll probably never see that sneaky driver using ‘Road SMS’ to text behind the wheel. At least until he’s already run you over. (via Android Community)
