[prMac.com] Barcelona, Spain - Keemeo has released TimeBooth 1.0 for iPhone and iPod touch. TimeBooth offers ultra-realistic face transformations, and can transform any face into a child or a teenager, or add wrinkles to a face and make it look older. Four age categories are available: child (6-13), teenager (13-21), adult (21-55) and older (55 ). TimeBooth is available in the Lifestyle category of the App Store. Time travel has never been easier!
"What makes TimeBooth truly remarkable", said Emmanuel Goossaert, the creator of TimeBooth, "is that it does not use transparent layers on top of pictures like other booth apps." And indeed, the technology behind this app is amazing. TimeBooth uses a complex algorithm that detects facial features and apply changes based on a statistical model. It is extremely difficult if not impossible to tell that the resulting pictures have been modified by TimeBooth. Acclaimed science fiction author Arthur C. Clarke once said that "any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic." Well, magic has come to the iPhone, and it is inside TimeBooth!
Finally, there is a simple trick to know in order to take full advantage of TimeBooth. The quality of the results depends greatly on the quality of the input pictures. The iPhone and iPod touch having limited cameras, the results will look great but they could look even better. Using pictures taken with an external digital camera and imported from the photo album, the results will be striking.
