ALEXANDRIA, Va. (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Aging 20 years instantaneously can really make a person appreciate their youth.

Anyone curious to see what they might look like in 20 years can check out their future face on In20years.com.

People can upload a photo of their mug and have it automatically aged by 20 or 30 years in a flash, all based on their current age, gender, and drug use.

Spokesperson Alex Konoplev says they used the same technology their mother company, Luxand, uses for face recognition so as to “predict” what a person may look like in the future.

The company analyzed how aging affects human faces and designed a mathematical model based on the process, then made the technology to pinpoint certain parts of the face and fast-forward it by two decades.

Though the tool may send people scurrying to plastic surgeons in hopes of stopping the years, Konoplev says, “In most cases I believe we help people appreciate their youth.”
