In this variation on pen-based text input
I was interested in trying something in
which words would form interesting visual patterns.
To draw any one character between the hex dots, you use a simple line or curved arc. As you drag your mouse from one character to another to make a word, your pen traces out interesting compound curves. Eventually, when you've written a particular word enough times, you learn the compound curve of that word as a visual glyph.
It's particularly fun to see what shape is formed by writing your own name.
