It's a question that's ruined dates and ended conversations, but nevertheless, it's one that we can't seem to resist asking. How old do I look? Answer too high and it's game over, answer correctly and it's an eye roll and a 'wtf' for you my friend. Alternately answer too low and everyone knows you're just a big fat liar. So, what then is the answer? Step in #HowOldRobot a spanking new app that the internet's vommed up for all those who love procrastination. Using some fancy technology this new app promises to reveal your exact age. It also claims to predict your gender which, for obvious reasons (gender stereotyping, discrimination, transphobia) is all kinds of dangerous. Does it work? Meh... (See below).
