*** Featured in iPhone App directory magazine (vol 2.) *****:
"The results are funny but not at all flattering so be prepared to have the iPhone swiped out of your hands so your friend can take a photo that makes you look equally unpleasant!"
"...many of your allegedly grown-up friends will find this app hilarious"
Crazy Faces is a real artificial intelligence system which detects faces on a photo and automatically turns them into caricature-like trolls, orcs, goblins or plain aliens. No one on a photo (with frontal, straight face) can hide from the vicious AI and avoid precise and fully automatic face goblinization and imminent trollification.
All you need is just take or open a photo with frontal, straight faces and the rest will be done by the app. For iPhone owners there is a Prank-a-friend mode with some prank hints and scenarios. Ideal for short coffee breaks. Here are just a few of possible scenarios with Crazy Faces.
PRANK-A-FRIEND (iPhone only!):
Tell your friends: "Here is an alien detector camera - let’s check if there are any Martians among us". *Take Picture*. Later, ask to rotate the iPhone to show Before/After pictures.
*IT DOESN'T SEE ME! *
Ask a friend: “Could you please take a picture of us?" Press *Take Picture* and pass the iPhone to a friend. Then when posing, turn your face slightly left/right. Your face won’t be altered on a photo.
*THIS CAMERA HATES ME!*
Tell a friend: "My camera is acting weird on me. Can I check its reaction on you?” press *Take Picture* and pass the iPhone to a friend (later, ask to rotate the iPhone to reveal the prank secret :)
*WHAT DID YOU DO TO MY IPHONE?*
Ask a friend: "Could you please take a picture of us?" Press *Take Picture* and pass the iPhone to a friend."
*FACE SURGERY GONE WRONG*
Ask a friend: “Want to see an optimal facial surgery generated by super-advanced computer algorithms?” *Take Picture* ...then pass the iPhone to a friend and say to rotate it ;)
EXPLORE (iPhone/iPod Touch):
Have fun and train your skills in taking portraits with iPhone camera or load saved photos from Photo Library. Save and e-mail attached photo to a friend.
Rotate the iPhone to see Before/After pics!
TROUBLESHOOTING - Before/After pics look the same
Make sure faces are straight and are looking into the camera.
Faces too big and too small will not be recognized, so choose distance wisely when taking a shot.
If the app crashes, reboot the iPhone to resolve the problem.
Please check the above before posting a review, or contact us directly if there is a problem.
*ROFL* Did you see THAT face?
