Have you ever wondered what you'll look like in 10 years? Well, maybe it's more fun to think about what your kids will look like in 10, 20 or even 60 years.
You no longer need to imagine. You've probably seen age-progressed photos of kids, like those who've been missing for many years. Now, the University of Bradford in the United Kingdom is using technology to see what England's royal family will look like down the road.
Specifically, the university's Centre for Visual Computing department has age progressed Prince George, the first son of Prince William and Princess Kate, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge. And in line to one day take the throne.
The Centre, which uses computational, physiological and psychological data to develop biometric and securities technologies, has been having a little fun with its technology. It has taken photos from both sides of Prince George's family, as well as the photos of the adorable toddler himself, to create images of Prince George at 7 years old, 20, 40 and 60 years old. (See photos next page.)
The university's computers map faces using up to 40 distinct features, like the length of a person's nose. It then maps this information into its system to produce images that it says are 80% accurate.
