Juan Or's Look-alike Meter
Mommy accidentally found this look-alike meter when Mommy was blog hopping at MamaDanish78's blog. This look-alike meter allows you to determine how much your child resembles you or your spouse. Sounds exciting and fun, right? So Mommy clicked on the widget which led Mommy to a webpage in MyHeritage.com. MyHeritage claims that their look-alike meter uses state-of-the-art face recognition technology to determine the percentage of resemblance. All Mommy has to do is to upload photos of Mommy, Papa and Juan Or. After that Mommy was prompted to register and then the uploading process began. Just follow along the guided instructions and voila, the meter's needle started rocking to and fro and finally settled at 12% resemblance to Mommy!
And then, just for curiosity's sake, Mommy retried the look-alike meter but this time using another photo of Juan Or at 7 to 8 months old. The result? It's a 14% resemblance to Papa! So Mommy has put the 14% resemblance look-alike meter at the bottom of this blog (you need to scroll all the way down).
What's the conclusion here? How much percentage of resemblance depends on which photo you upload. Seen from another perspective, as the child grows up and as the face changes, so does the percentage of resemblance to either the mummy or daddy.
