Looksery Launches Its Video Messaging App For Selfies On iPhone With Real-Time Face Filters and 3D Animation
San Francisco, CA – October 23, 2014 – Today, Looksery (http://www.looksery.com), makers of groundbreaking face tracking and face modifying technologies for real-time video, announces the release of the first video messenger app with face tracking, real-time filters and 3D animation features. Looksery’s software provides effortlessly delivered no-lag and photorealistic visual effects for the human face that empowers video messaging with ultra- streamlined visual user interfaces.
With this new app, Looksery will change the selfie landscape forever! So what does this mean for the industry? – Looksery has answers.
Originally, a selfie signified a personal quick snap moment in time. However, since its inception the selfie has evolved into something viral but far from quick. Many people utilize advanced and time consuming software and apps to create the perfect selfie.
The problem here stands in an awkward and distorted image from the front facing camera that makes any object appear closer than it is. Looksery offers solution to this and lets everyone create amazing photo and video selfies in one tap.
So what does Looksery offer its users?
The Looksery app is using real-time face tracking to deliver the ability to modify the user’s face in a range of different ways. The user can choose between beautifying, fun or even scary effects to boost their selfies with.
The filters made available in the Looksery app offers the ability to change the features of your face (eyes, nose, face shape and even eye color.) For those that want to pull a joke on their friends or just feel like being out of the box creative with their photos or videos, tools are made available that will allow the user to add fun effects such as zombies, monsters, skulls and a whole lot more.
Above the already groundbreaking face modification tools and feature is the ability to digitally dress and express yourself in 3D avatars. Available in the first version are three digital characters to play with; a panda, a gecko and a cat.
The app also offers to share live video through the Looksery chat, or choose other sharing options, like iMessage, Facebook, Instagram, Vine or email.
“We are excited to announce that today we are bringing you a new selfie experience along with a new way to video chat. Today we release our patented Looksery technology for the iPhone. The future has always been in real-time video communication, and the future is now.” says Julie Krasnienko, Director of Business Development
One of the major differences between the Looksery engine and the static filters presented in other apps or social networking solutions is that Looksery can be implemented into virtually any camera solution, app, or website.
“Our aim is to create a marvelous experience through the groundbreaking filters we provide in Looksery. The core technology can be implemented in virtually any service and used for viral social campaigns. We are already talking to several brands about possible partnership deals, and we are open to bridge new connections with companies and brands that want to wield the power of our technology,” said Victor Shaburov, Looksery CEO.
