Type Synthesizer

I've been working in a really simple type synthesizer made with Processing
http://dmtr.org/syntype/
I can export direct to PDF but really looking forward to some way of build a font file from it.
Cheers

Interesting start, but can you control more variables? like overall spacial dimensions of the characters such as a ratio of vertical dimensions to horizontal?

Thanks Scott. not yet but its' nothing hard thing to implement.
The hard part will come when I start trying to implement accentuation

Great, thanks for the links. Both seems really interesting projects.
MeekFM is totally insane.

Here is my font file format, a simple text with a bunch of x/y coordinates

0:0,1|0,4|2,4|2,0|0,0|0,1|2,3
1:1,0|1,4|0,3
2:2,0|0,0|2,2|2,4|0,4
3:0,0|2,0|2,2|0,2|2,2|2,4|0,4
4:2,0|2,4|0,2|2,2
5:0,0|2,2|0,2|0,4|2,4
6:2,4|0,2|0,0|2,0|2,2|0,2
7:2,0|2,4|0,4
8:0,2|0,4|2,4|2,2|0,2|0,0|2,0|2,2
9:0,0|2,2|2,4|0,4|0,2|2,2
T:1,0|1,4|0,4|2,4|
O:0,0|2,0|2,4|0,4|0,0
P:0,0|0,4|2,3|0,2

If somebody is interested in seeing it running with your own squared font, grab your grid sketchbooks!
