Pilot Handwriting - Write by Hand on Your Keyboard

Pilot Pen has created a neat website through which you can capture your handwriting on paper then use it to type and send emails. Pilot Handwriting provides you with a simple grid to print and complete by hand. After you've filled in the grid just hold it up to your webcam and Pilot captures your handwriting to use as a font. You can then type on your keyboard using your very personalized font. Unfortunately, that font can only be used to send emails to your friends from the Pilot Handwriting. If they make downloading the font an option then they'll really be on to something good. Learn more in the video below.

Font Burner - 1000 Fonts for Blogs

Font Burner is a collection of 1000 fonts that can be used for free in your blog or website. I've been playing with different fonts as I work on a blog redesign. I just learned about Font Burner today, but I am already impressed by the collection of fonts.

Applications for Education
If you teach web design or you just have some students that are interested in really customizing your class blog or website, Font Burner could be a good resource for you.

Making Slide Shows Better

If your students are tired of using the same boring, standardized fonts when they create content or you're tired of looking at those fonts, take a trip to 1001 Free Fonts. The fonts available are free for non-commercial use and can are available for Mac and Windows operating systems.

Applications for Education
While not a ground breaking website by any means 1001 Free Fonts might be useful for students looking to create something a little different than everyone else. Sometimes just a minor deviation from standardized fonts is all a presentation needs in order to stand out from the crowd. The same is true for posters and pamphlets. But don't take my word for it, see what marketing guru Seth Godin has to say about font selection in his blog post Nine Steps to Powerpoint Magic.
