Typespace is a 3D variable typeface native to augmented reality (AR). It is an exploration of what the next-gen font could be. Designing for AR requires an environment-aware approach as every physical space has different lighting, visual clutter, and other factors that affect legibility. It can be challenging to predetermine designs because even minor factors like the color of clothes that people wear on a particular day can have an impact on the design. Creating software that lets you put a variable AR typeface makes it easy to tweak the font in real time in the surrounding it's supposed to be in. Moreover, AR provides more dimensions resulting in diverse variations that are not possible on 2D media. Typespace was made using primitive 3D cubes to reduce the computational burden on the device while giving it the flexibility to be scalable and variable in all dimensions.
