[prMac.com] Surfside, Florida - iTech Developers today is pleased to introduce Fat Kiosk HD 1.0 for iOS, their new visualization app that adds the effects of weight gain and aging to any frontal photo. The app employs automatic face recognition to detect the eyes, mouth, and chin, and advanced image processing to simulate how that face would appear if the person gained 100 pounds and/or aged 20 years. Photos may be taken from the Gallery or camera, and shared using Facebook, Twitter, eMail, or SMS. The app includes both automatic and manual controls, and works with any iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch.

Whether the subject finds it horrifying or hilarious, Fat Kiosk gives pranksters the ability to automatically add the effects of weight and/or age to any frontal photo. For best results the developers recommend the use of good quality photos, taken in close-up, at a full-frontal angle. It is also helpful if the subject's head is not tilted, and they should be smiling. With these conditions met, the automatic facial recognition of the app locates the position and dimensions of the eyes, mouth, and chin. Using these as reference points, the app's image processing function widens the bridge of the nose, broadens the cheeks, and adds a double chin. Users can create custom effects using the manual controls to outline the photo's reference points.
"Do you want to see the future? Look fat without the food," stated CEO John Jaimovich. "Avoid this by knowing how bad you might look."
* iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch
* iOS 3.0 or later (iOS 4 tested)
* 9.7 MB
