Seems like laser people will like this. Engraving this would be interesting.
Way cool! Need to find more…
Have to play with this:
Let’s add this to the list of lunch break rabbit holes…
THAT is an awesome find. Thanks for sharing!!
Flipscript has absurd licensing rules. I wouldn’t use them just because of that.
Thanks for alerting us to the fine print!!!
I love creating these! I will have to find some of the ones I did years ago.
Such a great use for GAN! Nice. I have a little notebook of ambigrams I’ve sketched, they’re addictive.
It’s neat to see something useful being done with ML techniques.
I think there are several other ambigram generators around besides FlipScript.
I started training a neural network to create ambigrams ( https://m.xkcd.com/2173/ ):
Typically, I write two target words next to each other or, above and below with one flipped. Then I look for commonalities in shapes of the adjacent letterforms and, start sketching.
Yeah, one key is that there’s often not a letter to letter match, sometimes the forms of or from two neighbors form a single inverted letter. So the above “alphabet” is neat but ultimately sub optimal.
Another link in the Rabbit Hole directory.
May need to sub folder it soon, it is getting rather large.
Read through Flipscript’s licensing and it’s industry standard, frankly way cheaper than I expected. $20 for personal and $100 for commercial? Total bargain! For perspective, a single style of Helvetica is $35/desktop, $35/web, $35/digital advertising, $70 ebook, $350/mobile app, and $350 per year/server. You should get paid for your work, know your value!
I suppose I meant terms of service.
I fully support artists and believe that they should definitely be paid for the value of their works. I just feel that the TOS is overboard here.
