Font controlled by face Real-Time

Here comes an intersting news. Font developer Andy Clymer at H&FJ has created a tool that supposedly modifies the type characteristics in real time based on facial expressions. Check out the video:



An excerpt from their own blog,

I’m intrigued by the potential to control local and global qualities of a typeface at the same time: fingers and mouse to design the details, faces and cameras to determine their position in a whole realm of design possibilities. I wonder about the possibilities of a facial feedback loop, in which one’s expression of wonder and delight could instantly undo a moment of evanescent beauty.

I found this really interesting ;)
