Default machine/typewriter sans serif?

Classification: 

Hello,

Does anyone know what this font is?
It is kind of like a typewriter font without slab serifs but looks default for a machine.

It would be great to find out!
I like the look.

Thanks in advance!
Takashi

Artwork by [[http://karmakarma.org/tagged/projects|Joe Bradley]]. Firstly thought it could be bespoke then reminded me of [[http://typophile.com/node/79271|Leroy Lettering machine]] (alternatives [[http://typophile.com/node/114201#comment-571421|here]]). To me it looks like some sort of Helvetica Rounded Light with some little adjustements. Then, I remembered many non-latin fonts have their latin sub-sets close to "classic" typefaces (Helvetica, Optima, Times, Myriad...). Finally, found the Korean language font [[http://www.fonts.com/font/hanyang/hy-gothic|HY Gothic]] Rounded (bundled with Adobe Font Folio 11) that matches this design.

Yes Ryuk, it is by Joe Bradley! Good spot.
HY Gothic Rounded is very close but I see a different R and G.
Do you know other fonts that could be like this to check? A newer version of HY Gothic Rounded with changes? Thank you for the suggestions! It is very helpful.

Sorry Takashi, was too happy to find a close one that I concluded it was it too hastily. Sorry for that, many details remain off actually but can't find something closer than HY Gothic Rounded. Still searching...

Thanks Ryuk, I appreciate your effort. Look forward to seeing what you find.

Ryuk, you are definitely on the right track.

When I searched, I came up with a number of Korean and Chinese typefaces that were very close, but not quite exact matches (such as Gulim, which comes with the Mac operating system)--and nothing closer than HY Gothic Rounded.

Thanks for the counter-effort Kevin even it's still unbroken. Can't believe we can't find it...

Since the artwork consists in etched plastic plaques, and given the kind of spacing (see, for example the A-T pair in "EAT", my hunch is that it's a font that resides in some specialised machine used for custom made plaques, and has no direct correspondence with any digital typeface.
As for general shape of letters, the closest I found is AG Rounded.

Thank you riccard0. This is very helpful! Sorry to hear it isn't digital because it is very nice.
