This is how your next selfie could reveal when you will die

Your next selfie could reveal how long you will live.

A new website called Face My Age lets you upload a picture, and offers you your life expectancy.


Here's how it works: The website analyzes everything from the lines in your forehead to crow's feet and the size of your nose.

There are also a few lifestyle questions including smoking, drug habits, sun exposure and marital status.

The site then estimates your expected life span, remaining days on Earth and your probability of surviving past 65.

The site, which wennt live July 2, was designed by University of Illinois at Chicago Public Health professor S. Jay Olshansky and Karl Ricanek Jr., a University of North Carolina Wilmington specialist in face-recognition technology.

Olshansky tells DNAinfo Chicago that the website also serves another purpose: he receives data for his own research about the connection between face age and mortality risk.
