Ladies and gentlemen, step right up! For my next trick, I shall bring past magicians back to life! Not literally, of course, but with uncanny results, nonetheless.
Although this magic is of the technological variety introduced more than a year ago, it’s still quite astonishing to see it in action.
The software is called Deep Nostalgia by MyHeritage, and it’s a magic historian’s delight. Simply upload an old photo of someone and, after a few seconds of processing, the app produces a lifelike video animation of the person.
During my free trial, I created several video clips of some of my favorite magicians of the past, and here are the results, which I compiled into a longer video, complete with sublime background music. Hope you enjoy.
