Toward Better Guidelines for AR Typography
Fontworks and Hirose/Tanikawa/Narumi labs in the department of Computer Science at Tokyo University, as well as the Hirota labs in the department of Information Engineering at the University of Electro-Communications, Tokyo, are collaborating on research into optimal typography for augmented reality (AR). Despite its short name, a lot of consideration needs to go into AR because of devices that vary from small watches, smartphones, and tablets to heads-up displays in cars. In order to choose the best font, one needs to be fully aware of the purpose and environment of its intended typographic setting. This talk offers a progress report on the labs’ research.
