Travel back through the evolutionary timeline!
Devolve Me allows you to alter your face as you would have looked as an early human
The main reason Devolve Me is so effective is it’s simplicity. Add a photo from your camera roll or take a picture of yourself on an iPad. (Upload a picture from your computer if you are using PC or Mac).
Click done and move the mask over the your face and position the eyes, nose and mouth over your features on the photograph. Click Devolve and choose your stage. On the iPad version you can use the slider to show the transformation almost step by step. What happens to your eyes and nose as you travel back to the time of Homo habilis?
A great app to support children's understanding of Evolution and Inheritance from the Science KS2 Programme of Study
On the iPad you can save images to the photo roll and add them to other apps. Save the images as you go back in time using the slider and then add them in order to an video editing app such as Splice or iMovie. Make the slide length as small as possible, add some text slides and suddenly you have made your own animation! Save as a video.
Add the images to an app like Book Creator or Buncee and write an explanation text, comparing your features now to those of your ancestors two million years ago. Add to Morph app and make you character speak...
Create a display, mixing up the images and asking viewers to match the faces. Have a go yourself and see if they can find your ancestor!
