Say goodbye to the rest of your day. Because after playing with this web app that turns your webcam feed into a realtime stream of ASCII art, you're not going to want to do anything else ever again.

The site was actually made by Eric Fredericksen back in 2012, but just recently uncovered by Animal NY over on Reddit. And though the internet is full of many tricks, there's nothing quite like seeing a waterfall of letters, asterisk, dashes, and colons take the shape of your realtime, physical form. Go on and play with it for yourself, but be forewarned: You won't want to stop. [Grumdrig via Animal NY]
