TypoX is a recherche project which aims to democratise the digital writing.
TypoX is initiated from diploma research in ENSCI Les-Ateliers. The research aims to present emotional and personalized characters onto the digital objects.

In order to free ourself from the limits of standard typefaces, TypoX provide a virtual keyboard with typeface library, this keyboard can personalize the shape of typefaces with our preferable typing gestures. TypoX precisely analyze on how user touches the letter (position, duration, move…) and reshapes the original typeface in real time (applicable for all typefaces).
