ASCII uses a Raspberry Pi and camera to render live video only using the characters “.',^*+=c"otzxe$#BW”.
Each keystroke is uniquely rendered in the style of a mechanical typewriter. An ‘ink-strike’ determines the intensity of the key-press. Any misalignment is calculated along with smudges and ink-bleeding. Occasionally, it makes a transpositional typo. The underlying font is a digitised version of IBM’s Selectric typewriter (‘Courier New’).

Hi! Subconsciously you already know this, but let's make it obvious. Hopefully this article was helpful. You might also find yourself following a link to Amazon to learn more about parts or equipment. If you end up placing an order, I make a couple of dollarydoos. We aren't talking a rapper lifestyle of supercars and yachts, but it does help pay for the stuff you see here. So to everyone that supports this place - thank you.
