Why didn’t I think of this?! A typeface that creates information graphics by typing in numbers separated by a ‘+’ sign.
“In use, the fonts are pretty straightforward, and  though it’s an overused phrase, it does feel rather magical: you type  numbers, it creates graphics. The formatting for all three fonts is to  type the numbers as a sum, with the numbers separated by plus symbols: 20+40+10+30 for example. The fonts have a set of basic numbers and letters  (resembling a compressed Trade Gothic) you can use with ligatures turned  off to type in and check your numbers. Turning the ligatures on  transforms your numbers into charts”
