Convert images into ASCII art

The ASCII-o-matic converts an image (has to be 60 x 50 jpg) into ASCII art.

Here’s one I did of my Nissan 300ZX.

Update: Here’s another image to ASCII converter that doesn’t have so many restrictions on the original size of the image, but the output didn’t look as good.

  1. Cool :)

    Ever watch a video with aalib? That’s a trip. Try mplayer -vo aa with a video and try watching it for a few minutes. Ascii to the extreme. :)

  2. I’ll have to try that. Your comment reminded me of ASCII Star Wars.

  4. ASCII Star Wars rules. :^)

    I always got to it by telnetting to

    I thought work on that stopped years ago, it’s cool to see that they were working on it as recently as last April. Gosh, I wonder how hard it would be to create a movie like that? Talk about Geek Cred. :^)

  5. When I first learned about it I used telnet, but now it’s much more high-tech :)

    I agree – it must have taken hours and hours to create that.
