See how you'll look in 20 -- if you dare
Well, this seems cruel to us, but apparently there are a lot of people on the Interwebs who are secure enough to check out how they'll look in 20 or 30 years.
At in20years.com, you can scan in a photo, check off male or female -- and also whether or not you're a drug addict. (That has a big impact on how you'll decay.) Then the appropriate lines, bags and other lovely signs of aging are added.
The web app is the brainchild of Avi Goldfinger, based in Israel, who pulled a team from St. Petersburg, Russia (engine); Siberia (coding); and our own Alexandria (sales), to come up with age predictor that allows you to "make your face look old for free."
The site has been up for about six weeks, Goldfinger said, and by Monday evening more than 8.6 million people had aged themselves, including WTOP's Neal Augenstein. Another 87,000 had checked the like button on Facebook.
Goldfinger said the best response had come from China. More than 3 million people there wanted to see what they would look like in 20 years.
We're impressed by their courage? comfort? boldness? But we think we'll wait the 20 years, or check out another of Goldfinger's designs -- the one that allows us to erase our flaws.
