Here’s a stupid geek trick for you. When was the last time you typed in upside-down or backwards text? Probably never. But did you know it’s possible?
Whether you want to goof around and freak out your friends or just dress up a website, there’s a site that will let you quickly generate gravity-challenged text.
Head to the Unicode Text Converter page to check it out. It’s a barebones site so there’s not much to see. Simply enter text in the bar near the top, and click the Show button to get a list of fancy text effects. What’s more, you can copy and paste the output to share it anywhere.
You’ll find more than just upside-down and backwards options. Here’s a sampling of our favorites, from the base text “MakeUseOf is a really cool website!”
This is silly, of course. But don’t forget that a stylized font can make your text stand out. And if you only use it for a few minutes of fun, that’s totally fine as well. Maybe you can use it to practice reading upside-down.
Do you have any use for upside-down or backwards text? What’s your favorite effect that this site offers? Tell us what you think down in the comments!
