This seems like a pretty fun idea. And if there's anything Albert Einstein liked to do more than run around being brilliant, it was having fun.

There's a campaign on Kickstarter to fund a font patterned after the writing style of the famed physicist and developer of the theory of relativity. As of Wednesday at 1 p.m.,  "Albert Einstein Font" has raised $9,178 from 395 backers toward its $15,000 goal with 39 days to go.

The project was begun by typographer Harald Geisler and Liz Waterhouse, a former dancer who got the initial inspiration from a font on a restaurant napkin in Germany. LiveScience explains:

Geisler spent six months poring over letters from the Einstein Archives before developing a prototype, which he created by tracing the handwriting with a digital pen. The Einstein Estate has since granted approval for Geisler to develop the font.

And Einstein's handwriting wasn't all crazy disheveled like his hair and rumpled appearance. It was quite elegant, actually. You can see examples in the video linked here
