Want a Peek into the Future? Simulate an Older You for Free with In20Years.com
First Online Application to Show Real Photos 20, 30 Years into the Future
Ever wonder what you will look like in 20 years? How about 30? Luxand Inc., is launching In20Years.com, a new free website that simulates the effects of time on the photo subject’s face, prompting the tagline “See You…In 20 Years!” When the user uploads a photo, the application automatically recognizes and transforms facial structures to make the subject of the photo appear to be 20 or 30 years older, depending on the user’s choice.
In the pictures above the Chief Blonde has aged herself 30 years! I took a picture of my self when I was 24 (1/2 a lifetime ago) and aged myself to 54. I took another of myself at 47 and aged myself to 77. Ha! I am not getting older, I am getting better. Wanna try it on yourself? Your husband?
To see what he/she will look like in the future, the user simply selects a few parameters (including gender and how many years into the future) and uploads a photo of his/her face. Click the link to see the results—a fully aged version of the photo the user uploaded. The application requires no registration and is available for free.
“We’re all curious about our futures, so why not start with something today’s technology can loosely predict?” said Alex Konoplev, CEO of Luxand. “In20Years is a fun application that lets us visualize how we might look in the future and share these pictures with our friends.”
For a little extra fun, Luxand includes a “drug addict” option, which combines the effects of aging and years of drug use to offer a truly frightening look into the future. (ALthough you may find it hard to believe the Chief Blonde did not use the “Years of Drug Use option”!)
Based on Luxand face detection and morphing technologies, the In20Years engine automatically detects facial features in a photo and then runs algorithms to transform each feature to appear as it might in 15 or 30 years. It is compatible with any size photo at any resolution.
