edges2cats is a fun interactive playtoy in which you sketch out the outline of a cat then watch in awe (or horror) as it auto-generates a full picture – often with hilarious results.
edges2cats is part of a larger project called image-to-image that’s been designed to auto-generate photo-quality images from basic sketches. There are a few different tech demos available for this software such as edges2shoes and edges2handbags (both of which are available on the same page) but edges2cats is perhaps the highlight that offers the best (and worst) results from your rudimentary sketchings.
It’s very simple to use, just press ‘Clear’ to erase the default cat (which will probably look far better that your efforts), then do your best to sketch something that looks remotely like a cat. Once you’re satisfied with your creation, simply press ‘Process’ and watch with glee as the program spits out an image that looks remarkably like a cat (a cat that’s been in a horrific accident maybe, but a cat nonetheless!)
It’s a great technical achievement and a very silly time-wasting playtoy, well worth checking out for some cat mangling fun!
