Fun Web App Turns Your Name into a Picture

Whether you just want to pass the time or you are genuinely interested in seeing what picture is associated with your name, Turn Your Name Into a Face is a cool application that should keep you entertained for a while. All you have to do is visit the previously mentioned web page, write down your name and hit the “Into a Face” tab. We gave it a try and the result was rather interesting, as you can see in the picture to the left.

The way I see it there are two uses for this application. The first one would be to use the resulting image as an avatar on your instant messaging program or on various forum sites. Some might even go as far as too have it printed on things such as T-shirts, caps, stickers. Since Halloween is closely approaching, it wouldn't be such a bad idea to turn that image into a personalized mask. The other use would be to simply waste time – whether you are bored silly or just want something fun to do for a while. In this regard you could feed the application all sorts of names (parents, friends, loved ones) and see if there is any resemblance.


This one reminds me of another fun app developed by Mike Nolet, CTO and co-founder of appnexus. The application that he came up with analyzes your browsing history and tries to guess your gender. It would seem that some web pages are more frequently visited by men, while other by women. It is all a matter of how masculine or feminine you judge a web page, or better yet how the app judges said page. In my case, the app said there are 99% chances that I am of male gender – which is right!
