What would you do if you want a jigsaw puzzle with your significant other’s mug on it? The standard method would be to have a custom puzzle printed up that features their photo, however Mark Setteducati and Ken Knowlton have come up with a better way: Jicazu. Using 300 generic pieces of varying intensity, their puzzle can be assembled to look like anyone’s photo. For build instructions, you simply upload a photo to their website, and it tells you where to put each piece. Unfortunately, it only appears to be available in Japan. [via neatorama]

and surely, a photo of an asian guy, in whiteface, with an afro, was considered the best way to demonstrate that?!
i forgot to say, “making an unnatural face”
Seems like they are using an algorithm similar to jpeg compression. the puzzle looks like a low quality jpeg image with many artifacts.
