Everyone is taking selfies, in a pop – culture trend that conquered all corners of the world and all humans, from famous Oscar actors to presidents. In this line of thinking, making the process of taking selfies easier and more reliable was a challenge some app developers accepted and also translated into an actual product. World, now you have the opportunity to take hands – free selfies with FaceSnap, an iOS app which presents so many delicious features, you will soon wonder how you could live without it for so long! Let’s see what FaceSnap is about and what it can do for our vanity.
FaceSnap turns your iPhone, iPod or iPad into your personal camera assistant that automagically captures photos when faces are detected in front of the camera. FaceSnap is also your perfect tool for hands-free selfies or for room surveillance. In combination with Motrr’s Galileo robotic motion platform, FaceSnap will even spin around searching for faces and follow them once discovered.
In other words, the FaceSnap is basically a timer for your iOS – powered camera phone which is capable of taking a series of selfies in a row, pause for a few moments and resume the process. This will definitely cut off the time and effort you spend on positioning the phone in the right angle, pose for an Oscar – worthy selfie and push the button, letting you focus more on the pose than on the other steps in the process. But the FaceApp gets even sweeter than this. Let’s take a look into the tech details it encompasses:
- FaceSnap can capture a configurable number of images each time a face is detected. FaceSnap can even select automatically the best image of the series and discard for example blurred images.
- It has a configurable timer to limit the rate at which pictures are taken.
- Supports both front and back camera
If you are wondering why the app is so cool anyway (as there are some smartphones out there featuring camera timers, although the standard models don’t come packed with this necessary skill), there is more to the app that the eye can see at a first glance. Yahoo Tech specialists also let us know that
There are two settings that use a room-scanning technology called Galileo. Switch to Party Camera, and your phone’s back camera will slowly evaluate the room. When a face is detected, it’ll snap a series of five images. Move on to Room Surveillance, and the camera will randomly survey your space, snapping a single image when it recognizes a face.
Can you spy on people with this app? Given the recent news, you can actually spy on people with anything nowadays, so of course you can use the FaceSnap for nefarious purposes. But is this the reason why it was developed? Enthusiasts are all in favor of the possibility to take hands – free selfies with FaceSnap for all good, fun, innocent and heartwarming reasons.
