Huge foreheads, flat faces and saucer-like eyes: How scientists predict the human face might look in 100,000 years

Just as the human face has evolved considerably since stone age times so it is expected to keep changing in the future.

Today the human brain is three times the size of our primate ancestors. As our brains grew so did our heads get bigger, our skulls expanded and our features became flatter.

Now with the advent of wearable technology, such as Google Glass, how will our heads and faces evolve in 20,000 years, 60,000 years and even 100,000 years from now?

This was the question posed by artist and researcher Nickolay Lamm he quizzed Dr Alan Kwan, who holds a PhD in computational genomics from Washington University.

Based on their discussions Lamm has created a stunning series of images which display one possible evolution for the human race over the next 100,000 years.
