UPDATE: Why You Can't Find Your Museum Doppelganger

posted by Jennie James -

The Google Arts & Culture app was already a GREAT app!  It's a free way to appreciate artwork around the world, allowing users to virtually explore more than 1,000 museums and search for art by category and artist.  But now it's taken on a really fun feature!  It lets you to find your own museum lookalike!  What?!

Upload a selfie or a pic of a friend and let the app do its work!

UPDATE:  Unfortunately here in Texas we CAN'T!  Actually I thought it was just me since I don't know what I'm doing when it comes to technology.  But it turns out I wasn't at fault this time.  It's because of Texas law.  Basically, Business and Commerce Code Chapter 503 forbids the collection of people’s “biometric identifiers,” such as retina scans, fingerprints and face scans, without their consent. The law states violators are subject to “a civil penalty of not more than $25,000 for each violation.”

So BOO!!!  You COULD send a pic to a friend who lives out of state to have them do it for you, though.  

You have to tell me which artwork is your match!
