This is you in 20 years
Friday 14 May 2010
A new website, in20years.com, allows users to look into the crystal ball, finding out what they might look like in 20 or 30 years from now.
Ready to let curiosity kill the cat? Then upload a picture of yourself to the site, tell the system what time span you're interested in, and off you go facing the ugly truth.
You'll be even worse off if you happen to be a drug addict, which you can specify in all seriousness.
The new launch seems to be inspired by TV shows, including a recent Tyra Show episode, where worried relatives are trying to get their loved ones off their unhealthy habits by showing them what they could look like in the future. Popular examples of bad habits are smoking, drinking, and tanning, all of which age skin a lot more rapidly.
The 'drug addict' box seems a bit extreme to start with, but maybe there are other options in the works that will get you a result more tailored to your lifestyle? In the meantime, try the tool for yourself at http://in20years.com.
