Landmarker, Lip Swap and Tunnel Vision: New Apps from Google Creative Lab
Google Creative Labs is responsible for innovative ideas – whether apps or ads – to promote the Google brand. Yesterday, three of those ideas came out of the paper and came to Play Store, meet Landmarker, Lip Swap and Tunnel Vision.
A super simple app that shows famous or interesting places that are close to the user, all with black background and white text. It works in 360, only rotate on its own axis that it shows the famous places that are in the direction in which the smartphone is pointed. For more information, just touch the screen that Landmarker opens Google Maps. Unfortunately, it does not seem to work in Brazil (at least in Porto Alegre there are no places nearby).
Landmarker occupies about 20MB and requires Android 4.2 or higher.
As the application name implies, it allows you to exchange lips in a photo for yours. Open or take a photo, select the area you want to replace with your finger and snap the image with the smartphone camera. The main function of Lip Swap seems to be to make those videos where a still image is talking / dubbing a song, I think.
You can also swap other parts of the image, but always one region at a time. In addition, the app lets you change the "new" image color and brightness.
Lip Swap occupies about 7MB and requires Android 5.0 or higher.
With Tunnel Vision you record video with tunnel effects (warp) and other distors. Basically what the app does. In all there are 5 filters: 3 of tunnel and two of distortion. These last two use the smartphone's accelerometer to increase and decrease the distortion. Fun and quite useless.
At 14MB, Tunnel Vision requires Android 5.0 or higher to run.
In addition to the three new apps, Google Creative Lab has 2 other apps in the Play Store: Big Web Quiz and Photowall for Chromecast, the first a general knowledge quiz and the second a photo casting app, both for Chromecast.
