Besides being thankful for ten toes, ten fingers, and good health, parents can’t help but wonder what their youngsters will look like as teens and adults, and which pieces of family genetics will shine through. Computer scientists at the University of Washington have designed a novel piece of software that has the capability of showing how a child’s face will age throughout their lifetime and into their senior years.

Based off of a single photo, the technology automatically generates images by taking the average of thousands of faces of the exact same age and gender. The user can input any image from any angle with any expression, and will have the results in under 30 seconds. The software then scans the average pixel arrangement from a group of randomly selected web pictures and makes a calculation based on the alterations between the groups as they age, applying the changes to the new image.
