Homoglyphi.cc

A set of tools to transform typed text into familiar-looking unicode for stylistic or encryption purposes:

Homoglyphi.cc is a simple tool for writing Unicode-calligraphy. The user can combine characters from the Astral Planes of the code structure to create alternative word-images. These can, for exemple, be pasted into typographically restrictive social media. The point of view of homoglyphi.cc is the basic character set of cloud-english.

A homoglyph is a symbol that has a similar form to another symbol. The Unicode Standard is a utopian masterplan where each archetypical symbol is given its own space in an immense skeletal structure reaching for the sky. The FAQ says: “Unicode covers all the characters for all the writing systems of the world, modern and ancient.” At the time of writing, 110,182 symbols are encoded. Many of these are homoglyphs. This offers possibilities for creative users wishing to embellish their writing.

There are two online tools which (both illustrated in the GIFs above) one is an automatic converter of text, the other a custom character-by-character editor. Both can be used here

As well as these, there is now a Chrome extension available, allowing you to automatically covert text typed anywhere online - this works in Google, Facebook, Twitter … even Tumblr. The Chrome extension is available here

Impulse 101 by Anthony Antonellis

Part installation, part net art, part ASCII art, part glitch art - as demonstrated by this ANIGIF:

Impulse 101 is a diptych, half painting/half beamer, 100% on the internet.

The work begins with the 4 foundational font characters of 8-bit Block ASCII, ░ ▒ ▓ █. It consists of two 100 x 100 cm canvases. The left (black) side is acrylic on canvas, while the right counterpart is a beamer projection of ASCII art animations utilizing real and faux copy paste glitches in MS WordPad.

More information, examples, gif animation and videos can be found here

I'm keeping this here to use in the future!

Middle Finger Emoji - it’s happening in 2014!

Emoji is gaining hundreds of new characters, as part of the late-2014 update to Unicode 7.0. Emojipedia has the full list of these New Emojis.

The Middle Finger Emoji has been requested more than any other Emoji, so it’s about time someone sorted this situation out! 👌😂

Finally those with pent-up frustration will be able to express it in Emoji:

Update November 2014: No support for the middle finger emoji from Apple, Google or Microsoft yet. However as the middle finger has been approved already, you can already see and use it if you install a unicode 7 compatible font.

Those cute cartoon symbols on your smartphone aren’t there by design so much as because they’ve gone viral.

Earlier this month, the Unicode Consortium—a nonprofit made up of member companies including Apple, Google, IBM, Microsoft, and more—announced a new version of the Unicode Standard that would bring more than 250 new emoji to people’s devices in the near future. Included in the list of new emoji are a golfer, a racing motorcycle, a beach with an umbrella, and a derelict house building. Why were these emoji chosen, and not others?

The simple answer is: they weren’t chosen, not really. Any child at bedtime asking his or her mother “Mommy, where do emoji come from?” will no doubt go to sleep disappointed. There is no committee that decides that there needs to be a chipmunk emoji, or that an aardvark emoji would just be beyond the pale. Rather, emoji—like language itself—has a life of its own.
