Interactive Font Database


Could be an interesting way to think about searching for information. Fontplore is an interactive application designed for searching and exploring font databases. Fontplore helps you to easily find the right typeface for your project in a collection of several thousands of fonts. It lets you browse, preview, compare and print the fonts you are interested in.

    cooool. do you think the system just recognizes the shapes and doesn’t use fiducials at all?

      The table was done by students from the same place that fritzing guys are from… It’s all about fiducials.. see what they say below

      “The interactive table is an implementation of the reacTIVision system and was built by students and staff from the FHP for the mæve installation and we are really really grateful for the opportunity to use this table as a basis for our work.

      The application running on the table is written in Java (using the NetBeans IDE) and based on the Processing framework. We use a MySQL Server for our database and the Processing SQLibrary to connect to it. The communication with the table runs over the TUIO protocol and uses the Processing TUIO Client. Mathematik – a part of the gestalt framework was very helpful for vector math and we have to thank Rob van der Woude for his PrintPDF batchfile.”
