Need a new profile pic?

For those of you with five minutes of spare time looking to do a little something interesting for your next Facebook or MySpace profile pic, then this might be just the ticket. This tool called the ASCII-O-Matic transforms your little picture into a series of type characters. There are even a couple minor adjustments you can make to customize your output file.

The weirdest part is resizing your photo. You need to be at 60 by 50 pixels. This will make pretty much any pic you use look blurry, but don’t worry, this is normal. Just upload the pic and presto, you have a matrix looking version ready to go.

The site also offers the ability to take the html code off your end result, but to be honest, I took the easy route and just captured a screenshot.

Try it for yourself.
