The phrase 'crumpled heap' comes to mind.

This is more art concept than invention but...

Setup a chair, chin rest (like at optometrists) and camera. Take still shot photo of your face. Repeat once a week for 10 years. Place images as sequential frames to movie short. Watch yourself, your children, dog, etc, age through time... wow!

Feeling a bit glum? Set frames in reverse, move back through time to a younger you.

Also good to see if that $89 moisturizer is actually doing anything.

       Someone has done this, recording his family's faces as they grew up. Can't remember who, tho.   

       I think I'd find it very depressing.

       [half], I believe. :)

       You would have to have a very structured and predictable and otherwise boring life to be able to consistently do this every week for 10 years. Besides, they have age progression software that does this for you.

       "And it wouldn't take that long" - um, ten years? I don't know you, but I have a train to catch!
