This Augmented Reality Filter On Facebook Lets You Lip-Sync With A Movie Character

A new movie by the name of Crow: The Legend came out last year which was special because of the reason that it could be viewed using a VR headset, with a two dimensional version having been released on YouTube. The one and only John Legend is voicing the main character in the film which is being produced by Baobab Studios. As part of the promotional campaign for this film, the studio has created an AR (Augmented Reality) filter that you can use on Facebook, one that turns your face into the protagonist of the film. It is an incredible piece of AR technology and the utter completeness with which your face ends up getting transformed is the truly remarkable part that shows you just how far AR technology has come over the years.

One of the best things about this AR filter is that you can record yourself lip syncing to a song that John Legend’s character would be singing in the film. This seems like a great way to market the movie because of the fact that people are going to be uploading a lot of videos of themselves singing which is going to spread the word that this film is on its way and that people should definitely check it out if they want to see what all the fuss is about.

You can also interact with the character through your phone. The amazing thing is that you don’t need VR glasses of any kind to be able to use it. This is a huge update that could potentially end up making both VR and AR seem a lot more accessible to people. This kind of tech is definitely the wave of the future, so it is important that companies keep investing in it.
