the Hololens "Typography" page has such an uncanny mixture of the practical and buzzwordy and utopian scifi docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windo "Text in both the physical world and the virtual world needs to be legible and readable. Text could be on a wall or superimposed on a physical object. It could be floating along with a digital user interface. [...] For the user's comfort, two meters is the optimal distance for placing holograms. We can use this distance as a basis to find the optimal font size."

has anyone ever written a scifi story entirely in the format of a typography style guide

@aparrish
This gives a whole new meaning to 'design fiction', and I want one so much.

@aparrish
Wait. Does a conlang with an unusual orthography count as design fiction in this context? Like, the list of suggestions on how to format ilakash...

@enkiv2 I think so, yeah! and after I wrote that toot I realized that I had co-authored a story(?) that might actually be in that genre constellation.crummy.com/Pey%2
