Aging Software: Watch Yourself Grow (Older)

Posted by: Olga Kharif on May 17, 2006

Ok, you’ve got to try this. Scotland’s government health officials just released this really cool Web-based software that allows you to see what you will look like when you get older.

You just go to this Web site, upload your photo, click a few buttons, and the site will e-mail you a photo of yourself when you are in your 60s or 70s. I’ve tried this. It’s very cool. And no, I am not sharing that photo with anybody.

I had a reply from the Scottish site and their license to use the software has ended. They said the software was developed at St Andrews University. Mailed them but no reply yet, hoping they will get in touch to age a young photo THOUGHT to be my Grandfather. It's the only way we will know. Anyone know of any other aging software please?

so the code age-me works, but when it ages you it is very strange. it turns you green and stuff. it also happened to the demo-so it's not very "realistic" have you..

I tried the age-me and it worked, but when I actually tried to age a picture it doesn't do it. It claims to take a couple of minutes. It's been at least 15 and nothing...

This is just blatant advertising by age-me and is very annoying.... who ever is the administrator of this forum should keep better control of the spamming..... Very Very disapointed

age-me token no longer works, they found out and removed it.. doh!

i guess i'll pay up, the results are fantastic.
