Face the Future

I knew I would find something interesting to put here instead of nagging about things I can't change. Today I was reading the news on Corriere Della Sera (that's how I keep my Italian sharp)and I found a very interesting research by the university of St Andrews.

They are studying transformations of people's faces and they uploaded some demos software in the website www.faceofthefurute.org.uk for everybody see how it works. I already toyed with some pictures I have here and the results were extremely funny. You can see how you would look like if you were a baby, a child, an old adult, African, Chinese or a Botticelli panting! Not everything worked for my photo, but what I got is enough for now.

My original picture is:

And the Transformations:

I'd say caveman, but...

And the scariest of them all:

Thank goodness for the Botox!
