SAN FRANCISCO – June 24, 2014 – Looksery, Inc., a company who recently announced the launch of their Kickstarter campaign has reached 100% of its funding goal 24 days before campaign concludes. The campaign which ends, July 19, raised $30,000 to release its unique messaging app with real-time photo and video filters.
Being funded in such a short time demonstrates the growing interest in the Looksery app and their technology.
“Kickstarter was a big challenge for us, and we found very exciting to prepare for the campaign. Support came from around the world, and we are very thankful to all our backers. Our next goal is to raise additional funds to create new filters, and involve our backers to the design process”, said Yurii Monastyrshin, Co-founder at Looksery, Inc.
The first backer was Eric Lewis from Highland Park, IL. Hanna Dolores from Mountain View, CA provided the lucky pledge that pushed the campaign past $30,000. Some of the rewards purchased include:

Additionally a host of exclusive items for backers only are included: t-shirts, hoodies, hats and more.
Looksery recently also announced further details about the app and its real-time selfie filters through their Kickstarter campaign page. The app will initially feature a set of 10 powerful presets that can be combined and used simultaneously to create incredible real-time photo and video effects. The user will be able to further expand the effects library through in-app paid options which include filters such as 3D generated avatars and incredible face tracking action driven effects.
Looksery is looking to license its core face tracking and face modification technologies to call centers, handset manufacturers, cosmetic companies and telcos.

One of the most important, and perhaps the app’s most distinguished feature, is the ability to optimize and provide a new and improved level of video communication.
