TITLE: I've Been Toogled AUTHOR: Eugene Wallingford DATE: September 04, 2004 4:37 PM DESC: ascii art generating search engine ----- BODY: ASCII art seems to be going through a renaissance these days. This quintessentially '70s art form has attracted a cult following among today's youth. An example of this phenomenon is the fun little search-engine-and-art-generator Toogle. Toogle feeds your query to Google Images and then generates an ASCII art version of the #1 image it finds using the characters of the query as its alphabet. The images look pretty good; it even reproduces colors well. True to form, I have Toogled myself. The result is shown above. Not the first image I would choose, but who am I to doubt Google Images? Now I can tell everyone that I really am a man of letters. -----
