Beware: Nic Cage is taking over Instagram

A new web app appropriately called ‘Feeling Cagey?’ is out where random Instagram selfies turn into the lovingly handsome face of Ghost Rider himself, Nicolas Cage! Created by Josh of the marketing company Gamaroff, the app was constructed using ‘OpenCV software, which performs facial recognition on a live feed of selfies’.

‘I put the thing together in a weekend after having a discussion in the pub about face detection and then thinking what a great idea it would be to apply the world’s best movie star to Instagram selfies through it’, says the creator. So now you know what other people get up to when they say they’ve got ‘plans’ this weekend.
