Today’s tip is both fun and a little creepy because you get to see and talk to your futureself.
A promotional website put together by Orange, a European telecom company allows you to take a picture of yourself and have it transformed into a 3D representation of yourself 20 years from now.
I’m not really sure how this sells mobile phones or telecom services, but you can either use your webcam to snap an image or upload a picture from your computer to get started.
Once your futureself is rendered, you’ll b e prompted to have a conversation with yourself...this is where it starts to get a little creepy.
It turns out that in 20 years, you’ll have a British accent so it’s really cool for all you Downton Abbey fans.
If you have kids or grandkids, this site will probably provide a lot more fun because the futureself is kind of like playing with Siri.
