Amusing toy

...via fuzzyspacekitty.

Toy needs some work -- veeerrrrrry rudimentary facial-recognition software, pressed into service for comparing bored netizens to photos of celebrities. *chuckle* Actually, it's probably the relatively small comparison set, more than the software itself.

It says the result page will stay up for "at least 48 hours." My 3 matches, in order? Shannen Doherty, Cindy Crawford, Halle Berry.

Um, not so much. But still amusing.

(ETA: If you're trying this after the link above has died, the main page is www.play-analogia.com.)

It then occurred to me that it could be even more entertaining with non-photograph pictures...

Lizzie Siddal (or at least Rossetti's image of her) is apparently not as Unbelievably English as I've always thought. Then again, by her own hand, you get two out of the same three it came up with for me.

How about shortcut live-action casting for... Delirium? ... Kim Possible? ...

Okay, stopping now. *g*

BTW, it seems to be a javascript -- took me a minute to figure out why I couldn't get it to work in Mozilla (where I have all that stuff turned off).

Hee!
Well, I recognize Catherine Bell...

I think the two non-Americans came up for Gabriel's Lizzie sketch too. *g*

although all three seem to share the pointy-chin thing.

Eye shape, eyebrow placement, length and placement of nose, relation of apples of cheeks to nose.

It actually does seem to be pretty sophisticated in its analysis, even if the practical application at this stage is clearly limited to "fun toy".

Misremembered. Recognized one from that and the other from Delirium. ;-D
