game #oftheday: age yourself - see what you'll look like in 30 years

I feel like I'm in a Tom Cruise movie.

Hahaha this is so fun and so morbidly mesmerizing! I stumbled across this game, Face Retirement sponsored by Merrill Edge and Bank of America, with technology from Modiface. You get to see how your face will age in every decade, and mine went all the way up to age 107. There are also some interesting tips on the side about how the economy may change in the future.

I noticed the biggest aging factor seems to be a sagging of the jaw and everything just starts to droop down. I guess that's what aging is according to Modiface... I got my brother hooked on it and after he got freaked out about himself, we got carried away and had a lot of fun testing the game's accuracy by taking pictures of our parents' old photographs, back when they were young. :X

To try it out, enter your age and sex, take a picture of yourself and then let the creepy magic do its work! They have an "Audio Off" option for those who are more leery, but you can turn it up high to get an even fuller experience. XD
(For those concerned about privacy and rights, the images used and produced are only up for as long as you use the service and are on the site. After you're done, it's erased online, unless you choose to share your results on Facebook, whereupon it'll be on Facebook's servers.)

Here are my results. Now I know why my mom always says youth is the greatest beauty:

The present.
Age 57.

Age 87.

Hahahaha! Okay, not recommended for anyone with a Peter Pan complex, but I had a lot of fun.
