Yesterday, Slashdot reported on an ASCII art animated cat from 1968, made by printing hundreds of computer generated images of an ASCII cat and photographing them onto cinefilm. You can check it out on Youtube.
For those interested in ASCIImation, you can also watch a Starwars ASCIImation over telnet by connecting to towel.blinkenlights.nl (IPv4 or IPv6) on port 23. More about it here.
Anybody know of other cool ASCIImations?
