Name To Face

Feed it with your name, and this website turns it into a unique avatar — don’t ask me how they do it though. Here’s what turned up when I entered Sharleena’s (real life) name:

How about that! I kid you not. Now, as for Gail Zappa

    Nonetheless interesting from a programming perspective. The algorithm seems to be based on the number of times a letter appears in the sequence but may also be based on changes that occur at higher levels (such as: after any letter is repeated 5 times, switch to another face type). To test this try typing in “bob”, “bib”, “bab”, “bub, “beb”, and even “bzb” to see the same face type change noses. Try “aja”, “afa”, “aza”, etc. to see a long-haired fellow with glasses change noses, eyeglass style, and hair frizziness.
