Designers Create IQ Font With Smart Car, Custom Software

Designers Pierre And Damien strapped professional race car driver Stef van Campenhoudt in a Smart car, set him loose beneath a camera and custom software built by Zach Lieberman, and then proceeded to create a faster take on fonts.

The camera tracks four points on the corner of the Smart car by way of colorful stickers. The camera above, mounted to a crane, takes those points and delivers them to software that creates the shapes, punctuation and all-important letters and numbers that make up a font.

You can actually download this font here, although we doubt it will make you type faster or anything. It was only a Smart car, after all (although I was personally amazed that a Smart car could drive like that). [Vimeo - Thanks, Tom]
