Face transformation software is a great way to get students thinking about how they will change during their lives, and what that might look and feel like. I use the above image as a stimulus to get my students to laugh at me: I find this makes them more likely to get into the lesson, and less likely to be shy. Some students seem really uncomfortable will looking at an old version of themselves, and often it seems to be something that has never crossed their minds.

If you are interested in this, look at the following sites:

  • Face Transformer – free, basic, produces only small images.
  • AgingBooth – was free on Android, but seems that iOS and Mac users need to pay. Produces large images, very good quality.
  • FatBooth – same as AgingBooth
