This is pretty interesting… Computer generated text, using a digitized manuscript font. The results are great and very beliveable:

FONTSELF is a type project about handwriting and drawn writing.

It provides the ability to create fonts that preserves the gestures of a given handwriting and the original look of the drawing appliance (ball-point pen, pencil, ink, paper, etc.).

FONTSELF proposes intuitive tools to create and edit bitmap font (scanned letters) as well as solutions to use them and exchange them.

You can even render a live news feed.
