Web App Recreates Your Face As A Swarm Of Text Symbols
Turn your visage into a realtime stream of retro ASCII art.
A newly available web app created by Eric Fredericksen is a refreshing bit of harmless and geeky fun. The program simply connects with your webcam and turns the feed into a stream of text characters such as asterisks and colons in real-time, creating an outline of the object in the camera’s feed. Users have mainly opted to transform their faces, the results of which can be downloaded and kept as a GIF series or as a greeting card.
