Based on work for recognizably unique textures by Janne V. Kujala and Tuomas Lukka we present a WWW service to bring those textures in public. At first Paperbot generates a unique id from any string (from a person name, for example) calculating a sha-1 sum for it. That sum is passed to the texture generator and a repeatible texture for background use is generated.

Please, participate! Do some textures look more ugly than others? We admit that there exist still a lot of variation in texture quality, but now you may help it to change. Please, take our test and we do our best to optimize textures to be more satisfying.
