Deep Dream Reveals the Shocking Truth About Donald Trump’s Hair

Our next president? Or presidents?
Our next president? Or presidents?

I‘ve been using Google’s Deep Dream software (via Dreamscope) to conduct research into the mystery wrapped in an enigma held desperately in place with hairspray that is Donald Trump’s hair

My conclusions: It’s not a wig, nor is it an elaborate combover.

It’s DogSlugs, mostly. And eyes.

His face is kind of messed up, too.

Then again, that’s pretty much the result I get every time I use Deep Dream to research anything.

More Trump research after the jump.

Hoping to capitalize on the popularity of its Deep Dream neural network software, Google has announced that starting on Monday it will fold Google Street View into the Deep Dream project. “All images now up on Google Street View will now be processed using Deep Dream,” Google spokeswoman Florilla Panganaban explained. “Deep Dream Street View will allow users to see how many Slugdogs they may encounter in any neighborhood they plan to visit.”

Here are some examples of what to expect when Google makes the big change.

Deep Dream Makes These Awesomely Ridiculous Vintage Men’s Magazine Covers Even More Awesomely Ridiculous

I‘ve long been obsessed with the bizarrely over-the-top cover art for 1950s men’s “adventure” magazines, in which muscular, often shirtless men face off against an assortment of unlikely animal enemies — from armies of “giant turtles” to squads of flying squirrels. (You can find an assortment of notable covers here.)

More recently, I’ve become obsessed with Google’s Deep Dream software, which can turn any picture you toss at it into a creepy acid nightmare filled with strange Dogslug creatures and a strange surplus of eyes.

And now that I’ve found a handy web interface for the Deep Dream software, I decided to combine these two obsessions into one. The results were, well, interesting.
