Pictures Look Better in ASCII.... really!? - Pictures Look Better in ASCII.... really!?
Mon, April 19 2004 | 10:23PM | PermaLink Feedback? has mastered the art of creating ASCII pictures in a matter of moments by employing 3000 hand-trained pigeons to do the colour-to-text conversion. Each pigeon analyzes a spec of the photo and based on the colour instinctively pecks at one of six different shades of grey which represent the portion of a 60x50 pix image they are responsible for. The working principle is based on pigeons inherent ability to distinguish between specs of food and concrete. Remarkable really.

To try it yourself move over to and select ASCII-O-Matic, upload a 60x50 pixel image and quickly create your own ASCII art! Then take credit for spending "hours" making the image yourself!!

Pigeons... hahahaa ;-)
