Your Museum Doppelganger – Ever wondered if your portrait is hanging up in a museum anywhere? Now you can find out with this app!
Your Museum Doppelganger
I heard about this on Air1 this morning and also I saw it on Facebook with a local TV station. So I went to see who my Museum Doppelgänger is. First off, what is a Doppelganger. They say a Doppelganger is a look a like. Pretty much your twin as they say. Someone that looks exactly like you! There is an app by Google that uses Facial Recognition to find a museum portrait that looks like you. This has been trending!
I am sure each time you submit a different selfie, it would give you different artwork. I even heard some people are adding going to see the painting on their bucket list.
The Google App is called Google Art and Culture
The app gave me four …
