Selfies

Do you have twin brothers?
I don't. so I made some. These are both me... Errr. half of me.
 The Blue image is two copies of the left side of my face. The right image, is two copies of the right side of my face. Why would I do such a dumb thing?


While the two photos seem like a foolish prank, they have a use. I wanted to see if google and other facial recognition software would correctly identify these two artificial people. It turns out it is never fooled by such tom-foolery.

By My Own Hand





Want to create your own font?
It's not that hard. You can do it in about 15 minutes.Go to this site:
https://www.calligraphr.com/en/webapp/app_home/?/

Download the two forms, print them out and fill them in with a felt tip pen.


You will need to Scan them back in and upload them back to Calligraphr.com then download and install the generated TTF font.Name the font  whatever you like, I named mine "Bobs Font".

OK, I have to admit. This may seem geeky. But it gets worse.  Go into any text document, (like Notepad). set the font to your font..  Turn on Speech Recognition. Talk fast and watch your computer screen type, IN YOUR OWN HANDWRITING, everything you say.

             It's CREEPY.....

Think of all they years you wasted taking hand written notes.
