Animated characters

ASCII art is cool. Ask anyone. Even Google pay homage when you search for ascii art.

Still, you know what’s cooler? Computer generated ASCII animations of course!

“Morph”, by the rather talented Skylined is a great example of just what can be achieved with a mere 94 printable characters, and a <pre> tag.  The static/distortion effects are surprisingly effective.

If you liked that, his Mandelbrot and Julia fractal roto-zoomers are well worth a look.

More, you say?  How about some real-time ASCII raytracing?! As someone who grew up in an 8-bit world, it’s fantastic to see that this art-form is far from dead. Viva la ASCII!
