Shapecatcher: Draw the Unicode character you want!
'This is a tool to help you find Unicode characters. Finding a specific character whose name you don't know is cumbersome. On shapecatcher.com, all you need to know is the shape of the character!' Handy.

Nintendo's work on Miiverse Penis Drawing Detection

'The unique feature of the Miiverse is being able to send drawings, not just text. But since the advent of the internet, there have always been those who have used it for unsavory purposes.'
<br/>
'Motoyama: we never had such a problem with our Hatena services. But, when we brought Hatena Flipnote to the West, we were caught off-guard by the amount of penises drawn by people.
<br/>
Kurisu: So the team and I had to come up with a way to create a system that auto-detects those types of pictures. [...]
<br/>
'Motoyama: After a week, we made very good progress on the system. Then we tested the system with Nintendo of America and told them to start drawing. It went horribly.
<br/>
Kurisu: What we learned is that people enjoy drawing penises. Multiple ones. (laughs) The system was not prepared to handle that.'
