‘MugShot Yourself’ Allows You to Be an Old-Timey Criminal

Get ready because it’s about to get creepy up in here with MugShot Yourself.

In an attempt to promote the new BBC series ‘Copper,’ a website has been developed that takes a photo of you and blends it with vintage mug shots, courtesy of Mark Michaelson’s “Least Wanted” collection.

The creepiness factor begins once the picture is snapped. After being photographed, a swipe through occurs showing the type of mugshot coming your way and soon your face is digitally blended with a tough-looking hoodlum of old. It’s quite interesting — and terrifying.

Trepidation aside, the technology behind the program proves to be something that we can’t understand, which is why we’re not in charge. MugShot Yourself uses Face.com‘s facial recognition technology to gather information about the angles and rotations of your face (scary!) along with lighting conditions in the room.

Ultimately, your photo is then blended with dozens of “Least Wanted” mugshots, whichever you choose. With technology like this, it’s no wonder Tupac is still performing concerts.

Check out this awesome video which shows the face substitution technique in action.

Pretty wild, isn’t it? Now, we’re sure you’re dying to check out MugShot Yourself. Therefore, who wants to see a mug of ‘Curb Your Enthusiasm’ star and ‘Seinfeld’ co-creator Larry David? So do we!
