Caricature Making App 'Hyperfy Face' Makes Any Photo Look Better by 9000%
Digitalists IA Ltd has launched an application for iOS (iPad, iPhone, iPoad) devices that creates caricatures from users' photos. App automagically detects faces on the photos and then applies deformations to faces only.
Hyperfy Face takes a straightforward approach to manipulate user's photos. This approach comes from Digitalists' research into existing proposition of applications that do face deformations. All 20+ applications that do face manipulation require user's direct manipulation of photo. Hyperfy Face does everything automatically:
Digitalists IA Ltd invited professional caricaturist to create patterns that are applied to faces. After screening out over 50 different variations, only 14 funniest ones were selected to be included in the final application release.
Here is typical usage pattern of Hyperfy Face app:
• Choose photo from album, or take photo on camera
• App detects faces on photo
• User applies one of the pre-made templates and sees immediate result
• To enhance caricature effect user can apply a photo filter (like Toon or Sepia)
• Share with friends to Facebook, Twitter, email or save to albums on the device
"We have refined our face detection technology over the 2 months we have spent working on this application. We will be using this technology to launch new products for several platforms: Android and Facebook in addition to iOS. Next app already awaiting in the iTunes review queue is 'Russian Yourself' " , says Sergi Kolesnik, Digitalists' Managing Director.
