Potential i-phone/ android app

It is common knowledge that "what-if" analysis can be done using data to show the various possible results by changing variables, for business or otherwise.

What would be interesting to see whether "what-if" could be applied to something very personal like our photographs. Imagine the everyday applications of an app like that - which could take a sampling of your photographs since childhood to recent past, use the facial features and the development seen, to predict say, how you'd look like in 10 or 20 years from now. What if you went on a diet and lost 5 or 10kg, what if your complexion is 2 shades lighter or darker and the like. Also, it could also be very useful for people under the knife of a plastic surgeon.

Given, we have face recognition tools and editing software availabe these days, this should be possible and may sell as a cool i-phone or android app. "What if" someone really gets inspired and turns this into reality!


  1. I think there already are apps like this. Of course, you'd still need the best Long Island plastic surgery to give you a nose job if you wanted it.

  2. I'd love to see how I would look like after a buccal fat removal procedure. I think I would look more like a matured woman.

  3. This could be a very powerful tool. I would love it if my surgeon could show me how I would look after my breast augmentation Orange County during my appointment.
