Students Interact With Human Race Machine
The Lamar University Setzer Student Center is dedicated to exposing students to new and innovated programming. The Human Race Machine will be the focus of attention in the center during the week of February 8-12 from 8 a.m. – 5 p.m. You are invited to experience the Human Race Machine.
The Human Race Machine is an actual computer console comprising four different programs. The Age Machine allows participants to age his or her face. The Anomaly Machine affords participants the unsettling opportunity of seeing themselves with simulated facial anomalies. The Couples Machine combines photographs of men and women in varying percentages to allow couples to view their offspring, or simply envision layered “maleness” and “femaleness” in one face. The Human Race Machine allows participants to see themselves with the facial characteristics of six different races mapped onto their own visage.
This program is not only educational, but fun. Students have a chance to interact with the programs that are available either individually or with friends of different cultures.
