Your Webcam Feed in ASCII is the Greatest Thing You'll See Today

By Ashley Feinberg on at

Say goodbye to the rest of your day. Because after playing with this web app that turns your webcam feed into a real-time stream of ASCII art, you're not going to want to do anything else ever again.

The site was actually made by Eric Fredericksen back in 2012, but just recently uncovered by Animal NY over on Reddit. And though the internet is full of many tricks, there's nothing quite like seeing a waterfall of letters, asterisk, dashes, and colons take the shape of your real-time, physical form. Go on and play with it for yourself, but be forewarned: You won't want to stop. [Grumdrig via Animal NY]
