As smartphone cameras are being widely used with latest and advanced features, Google has come up with a series of experimental photography apps known as ‘AppsPeriments’.
The tech giant has unveiled first set of this series with three really cool apps – Storyboard for Android, Scrubbies for iOS, and Selfissimo! for both Android and iOS.
Google has made the new apps intelligent enough to enjoy cool smartphone photography experience utilizing object recognition, stylization algorithms, person segmentation, and efficient image encoding & decoding technology.
As mentioned earlier, the Storyboard app is only available for Android users that converts the selected video into a ‘comic book’ by arranging several frames form the video in a comic book-layout.
The app automatically collects the most interesting scenes from a video and lays out after applying one of the six available visual filters. The comic generated can either be saved or refreshed by sliding down to get another combination. Google says there are approximately “1.6 trillion different possibilities” with this app.
Google has made available the Scrubbies app for iOS users only which is a video editing app that allows users to edit the clip smoothly and turn it into a loops to put emphasis on some action, replay a moment, or show a “funny face”.
The video can be edited by doing a “scrub” motion on the screen like a DJ does. A scrub with two fingers captures the playback which can be saved, and scrubbing with one finger plays the video.
The photoshoot starts as soon as the screen is tapped and takes a photo automatically when you stop moving after making a pose. Finally, the app combines all the photos in a gallery letting you to choose the best one to keep.
