Ausing typography ligatures for fun and profit. One wonders how badly you could abuse this for phishing/scams...

Making a font harder to read just enough to make the brain pay more attention enough to make it remember the information better.

prosthetic knowledge — FontCode Research from Columbia Computer Graphics...
Using font kerning as a form of steganography, very subtle, but with high rez pictures, can you run the reverse, checking against known fonts to detect possible steg usage, or do you have to allow for enough slop in printing and camera angle that you would get too many false positives?

Making Democracy Legible: A Defiant Typeface — The Gradient — Walker Art Center
An anti-OCR typeface to defeat surveillance measures, as an artistic expression anyways. Well, except by making this really public people will now a; build OCR software specific to ZXX glyphs b; build OCR software such that if it detects ZXX type glyphs, spin it around to a human for final judgement as an item of interest c; think this actually protects them in some way and use it poorly. Maybe if it was a postscript font that dynamically resize and obscure letters on the fly, it might have better resistance.

Garamond Classico™ Roman SC -
In the movie American Psycho, there is that wonderful business card scene. The actors describe a font called Cillian Braille, which may be a misinterpretation of the name Silian Rail, but the actual font used on the physical cards in the movie appears to be this one.

A font developed for readability at distance, which means it's a good font for reading pretty much anything, if readability trumps fancy pants design. Such as in this case, US Federal highway sign standards. Interesting that they did testing with elderly drivers, and how they perceive fonts at distance.
