Turn Your Name Into a Face

Submitted by on October 27, 2008 – 11:21 pm12 Comments

Don’t you just hate it when you sign up on a forum or blog comment system and everyone has cool avatars, but you don’t? If you aren’t too picky about it, why not just punch your name into Turn Your Name Into a Face, and let it come up with something for you out of 100,000 possible faces.

Now, granted, the options may leave a bit to be desired; they’re all black pixel art on a random pale background color. But there are enough options to be somewhat entertaining. It’s particularly fun to punch friends’ and family members’ names into it to see what they might look like, or at least what you can tease them with.

What I’d like to see is a WordPress plugin that uses this functionality to assign avatars to blog commenters that have not explicitly given themselves an avatar.
