Summary

With the ubiquity of typed text, the style and much of the personality of handwriting has been lost from general communication. To counter this we introduce an artistic real-time visualization of typed messages that additionally captures and encodes aspects of an individualís unique typing style. The potential of our system to augment electronic communication was evaluated and the results are provided along with analysis of their implications for social visualization.

Examples

These images show a message encoding information about the typed characters, their frequency, and the speed at which the message was typed.
