The Perception Laboratory's Face Transformer

If you've ever wondered what you would look like when you're older, or younger, or Asian, or even illustrated by a famous artist, then I've got a treat for you. The Perception Laboratory at the University of St Andrews has created a Java applet called the Face Transformer that will take a photo of a face and transform it in almost any way imaginable.
 
Although I can't see many practical uses for this technology other than perhaps using it to age photos of missing persons (which is, of course a pretty useful use), it's definitely a fun toy to play with. And I can see how studies into how humans perceive the world around them could lead to an experiment like this. Neat stuff.
