With all of the celebrities in the music world hooking up, it would be interesting to see what babies of, say, Jay-Z and Beyonce, would look like. (Or me and Beyonce.)

Using face detection technology, MakeMebabies ( can examine the facial characteristics of the parents to predict the baby's features. The site allows people to input their personal photo, photos of bf/gf, or photos of celebrities to determine the offspring's physical characteristics. Using proprietary face recognition technology, the exclusive "Baby Maker" engine generates a unique baby face based on the facial features in each photo.

I figure it could also be used with photos taken from online dating sites as one way to weed out people. Ugly babies are the worst.
