Here and there you’ll see something in it’s test stage, preliminary stage, or just before mainstream gets a hold of a concept and it blows your mind. Think of the yellow line on the football field on televised games.

“We devised a system in which a typeface would not be defined static font styles anymore but would be able to change it‘s shape and appearance at any moment reacting to a broad spectrum of inputs.”
