Domo Arigato: The Striking Similarity of Roboto and Helvetica

A visualization of the design intersection of Google's Roboto font and trusty old Helvetica. Helvetica appears in cyan, Roboto in pink.  The overlap is, well, the overlap.

This image has been corrected since the original posting.  I had mis-labeled Roboto and Helvetica, but now all is better.  Maybe that's further evidence of their pronounced-similarity. Oh well.
