Whether it's the Mona Lisa or Snooki that you want to envision in puzzle form, Ji Ga Zo makes it easy with their DIY kit. Using the included software (both Mac and Windows compatible) turns any photo (or one of the five included designs) into a map, which coordinates with icons on the back of the sepia-shaded pieces to create a mosaic image.

The 300 piece set can be used over and over again, or you can frame your masterpiece for hanging. Previously only available in Japan, you can now pick up your own Ji Ga Zo for $25 from Hasbro.
