You talkin’ to me? Japanese man creates iPhone quick-draw system (with video)

“Sometimes you just need to talk on your iPhone right NOW, and even the tedious task of fetching the device from your pocket or purse is just too big of a delay to handle,” Mike Wehner reports for TUAW.

“If this sounds like you, then you’re going to want to pay very close attention to the following video, as it may change your life forever,” Wehner reports. “The inventive Japanese man in the clip exhibits unbridled ingenuity in creating an iPhone quick-draw system capable of getting your smartphone into your grasp within just fractions of a second.”

Believe me, those users had quick reflexes and could dial a number in milliseconds. Even the homegrown NEC PBX couldn’t handle those speed-typists.
