UK doggy shelters take note!

Pedigree New Zealand came up with a fun new way to promote doggy adoption - Doggelgänger, “Human to canine pairing software, designed to connect real homeless dogs to their human doubles.”

The site uses NEC’s facial recognition technology, normally used for anti-terrorism and border control, to analyze a photo of your face and compare your features with those of dogs needing homes. The software then matches you up with the dog that looks most like you.

Even if you're in the UK and unable to adopt, it's still great fun. But hopefully it will take off here too!
