By on June 23rd, 2010

Welcome to Webby Wednesdays - a brief compilation of some useful web services which we found useful during the course of this week.

PilotHandWriting Create a Font From your Handwriting and Send Emails

PilotHandwriting is a nice web service which lets you create own fonts from your handwriting. The idea is very simple head over to the website and download a sample template. Print the template on paper and fill out the template with all the alphabets and numbers.

Once you are done filling the template, switch on your webcam and hold the paper right in front of the camera. The site will record your handwriting, read it and save a digital copy on it’s server.

Once the site has saved your handwriting, you can edit and make minor adjustments with the mouse. Now comes the fun part type an email from the site’s interface and the email appears handwritten. Sweet!

The only drawback is that you are not allowed to download the font in your computer for future use. Never mind, at least you can use this tool to send a handwritten email to anyone.
