This Looks Shopped of the Day: Human Faces of the Future
In today’s horrifying news, human faces may evolve into bug-eyed monstrosities in the next 100,000 years, according to artist and researcher Nickolay Lamm. In a collaborative project with computational geneticist Dr. Alan Kwan, Lamm illustrated how human faces might change once we’ve mastered the science of genetic engineering, giving us enormous eyes that wear a futuristic contact lens version of Google Glass. Thankfully, Lamm’s predictions have since drawn the ire of Forbes staff writer Matthew Herper, who criticized the illustrations for being unscientific and based on pure speculation.
