How fast do you think you can type on a virtual keyboard? That was the question the maker of this video asked before he realised that he could get up to 83 words per minute on his iPhone. 

The video might be blurry, but that doesn't detract from the fact that the guy has ninja hands and the stamina to complete the app in question to give him the magic 81 words per minute in the video - something he claims he has now beaten with a personal best of 83.

With typing aids like Swype and Swiftkey, we are sure that someone out there could probably beat this, even so it's something most of us would be proud of on a standard keyboard.
