New Google App Finds Your Museum Doppelganger But Not Everyone Is Loving The Results
A while back, we made a post about people who were perusing art museums and galleries and spontaneously stumbled upon their famous doppelgangers, in a fine art form.
Perhaps inspired by this, Google has decided to add a feature to their Arts & Culture app that uses facial recognition technology to match your selfie with classical art. The portraits are pulled from a database of celebrated works collected from over 1000 museums worldwide, so the chances of a half-decent match should be fairly high, shouldn’t they?
Well now the results are in, and it’s fair to say that they are mixed, at best. This seems to part of the appeal, however, as people have begun posting their funny photos online and they are proving to be wildly popular. You can see why!
Sadly, the feature isn’t yet available outside of the U.S. so if you’re not stateside and would like to give to find who's your look-alike from classical paintings, you’ll have to be a little patient. In the meantime, however, you can scroll down below and check out what others have been compared with. Don’t forget to vote for your favorite!
