You Can Now Have Photos of Your Dead Relatives Animated to Make Them Move.

Would you do this with your dead relative's photos?

The genealogy site MyHeritage is offering a new service where they'll animate photos of your dead relatives. Or anyone else, I guess.

They're using deepfake technology to make the faces in the pictures move and make different expressions.

They will NOT make the people in the pictures talk, since that could get them into some legal trouble with the laws around deepfakes in some countries.

The reanimation feature is FREE if you want to try it out . . . even with a photo of yourself, which I made the mistake of doing, because it's freaking me out, man.
