I popped my standard headshot in and here’s what I got:


A couple of thoughts:

1. If you saw a pic of me when i was about 4 years old, you would see a lot of similarities between me and that kid second from the top right.  Something SixthSense-y going on.  Wonder if I will look like those older guys in a few years?

2. What’s with the large women?  You trying to tell me something Google?

3. Apparently I bear some resemblance to Gyanendra Shah, the last king of Nepal. Always knew I had a royalty thing going on.

    LOL! You do know they’re not using face recognition, right? So they’re just looking for similar shapes and colors and I’d say they did a pretty good job. 🙂

    You can see the pattern recognition with the background, head shape, skin color (kind of) and shirt color. The amazing thing to me was the kid. I have pic somewhere of me as a kid wearing almost that exact same shirt. The resemblance is uber-freaky.

    I wonder how to accept the fact that almost every picture of mine returns girls results (+George Clooney sometimes lol…)

    I don’t know where google gets this the ideas for this stuff. This is why I don’t post pics.

    I had a blog post on this too, it looks like a cool feature but its also pretty unique and a bit weird.

    OK…so just how do you perform this search? Is this a US only Google thing? I wanna see who looks me.

    It may only be in US right now. If you go to image search and see a camera in the search box, you’ve got it.

    This is funny. I haven’t tried this yet, and I’m actually a little bit scared to see the results. Besides for laughs, I’m wondering if this feature is actually being used.
