St.Andrews’ University’s Face of the Future THE FACE TRANSFORMER, which allows you to upload your photo to transform your ethnicity (Afro-Caribbean, Caucasian, East Asian, or West Asian), age (baby, child, teenager, younger/older adult), or even turn your face into a manga image or an artistic vision (re: Botticelli or Modigliani style); as a drunk; and even as “Apeman” (50% ape)! Basically, harmless facial reconstruction!

Face of the Future is a publicly-funded project aimed at exploring the latest advances in facial computer vision and graphics, and what they mean for society. The project has developed a number of interactive exhibits, online demos and a lecture presentation aimed at engaging the public with the technology and the social implications of its technology.

Even better? You can save each facial transformation for your pleasure — but as the disclaimer states: don’t let your emotions colour your mood. After all, The Face Transformer is purely a fun toy! And just as plastic surgery proponents often say, once you make one change, you can’t seem to stop (plus you can save all your images) — highly addictive!
