Fontplore is an interactive application designed for searching and exploring font databases.Fontplore helps you to easily find the right typeface for your project in a collection of several thousands of fonts. It lets you browse, preview, compare and print the fonts you are interested in.
The interactive table is an implementation of the reacTIVision system and was built by students and staff from the FHP.
The application running on the table is written in Java (using the NetBeans IDE) and based on the Processing framework. We use a MySQL Server for our database and the Processing SQLibrary to connect to it. The communication with the table runs over the TUIO protocol and uses the Processing TUIO Client. Mathematik – a part of the gestalt framework was very helpful for vector math and we have to thank Rob van der Woude for his PrintPDF batchfile
