Using FaceApp on EVE Online avatars is the best thing ever


If you’ve been on literally any social network recently, you’ve probably come across image manipulation app FaceApp. The app takes in any photo of a face and uses a neural-networking approach to automatically re-imagine the face as a different age or gender or adds a photo-realistic smile to an otherwise sullen expression. It wasn’t long before some EVE Online players discovered that the app works just as well on EVE avatars as real life photos.

Signal Cartel member @dorian_reu on twitter has been slapping smiles on loads of EVE players this week, and the results have been brilliant. Happy EVE avatars have been popping up all over EVE Twitter profiles, some of them pretty amazing transformations and others just down-right hilarious. Below are some of the highlights:
