Weekend Webware: Turn pictures into letters with Ascii Cam

It's The Matrix meets your old TTY terminal

Man of letters

Check out the Amazing Instant ASCII Cam.

There's no use for this that I can see, but it's fun if you're old enough to remember printing out ASCII artwork on yellow ASR-33 roll paper. This modern ASCII portrait generator uses your Webcam to make a live image of your mug.

The dancing letters are a little Matrix-y, which is cool, but I couldn't find a way to redirect the output to a videoconferencing program, so it's a bit of a solitary experience.
