This Video Chat Software Runs in Terminal and Renders Your Face in ASCII

By Jamie Condliffe on at

If you find Skype a little too polished, then why not use your computer's abilities in a rather more retro way? p2pvc is a point-to-point colour video chat system, only it runs in terminal and renders the images in ASCII.

Free to download and use on GitHub, the software isn't perhaps for the code-shy, as you'll need to build the software from source; if that means nothing to you, maybe convince a nerdy friend to give you a hand.[GutHub]
