The 'Turn Your Name Into a Face' Puts an Image to the Name

The 'Turn Your Name Into a Face' generator is an odd way to pass time.

With a website that is very plain in design and simple to use, the generator asks the user to do input their name and click "into a face." Then, an 8-bit image of you will appear. The website doesn't differentiate between female and male (which probably isn't that surprising), as female names such as Kate Middleton generated a bald man with a sole patch.

The 'Turn Your Name Into a Face' generator can be hysterical, however, without the gender differentiation. Putting family, friends and celebrities into offers a fun way to pass the time. Who knows, maybe the generator will actually make an 8-bit that looks true to a person's name. Stats for 8-Bit Face Generators Trending: Older & Warm
