There's an emoji randomiser and it's brilliant

What were you doing when you were 17?

Trying to work out how to smuggle booze out of your dad's garage supply? Working out how to talk to girls? Revelling in teenage angst?

Not Giacomo Randazzo. A coder since the tender age of 11, he's just developed your new favourite emoji web tool.

The Randemojinator creates a potentially endless string of new emojis by combining the lower half of some faces with the upper of another, creating entirely new emotions the current crop of pictorial visages don't offer.

Randazzo was apparently inspired by the current "trend" of emoji use. "I don’t plan on developing it any further right now, unless I get lots of traffic and requests," he told TechCrunch. "I plan though on putting advertising on it , because I need some money. It didn’t take much to code maybe three or four days. Setting up the servers and finding the domain names are the things that took longer, it took almost a month in total."

You can't embed the emoji into messaging services, but you can share your creations on Twitter or Facebook (or Google+, if you're a proper weirdo) via the Randemojinator site.

We had a bash at creating some of our own emoji, which you can browse in the gallery below.
