MSQRD from Masquerade Technologies, Inc. is a video selfie app that lets you apply some really cool animated special effects, masks and other transformations on your face. All the effects are applied in real time with no lagging, and you can even make videos based on these effects.
The app uses proprietary facial technology that allows it to recognize the ears, nose and other facial features, then it overlays the effects on your face, producing the change and animation.
There are a huge number of special effects included such as tigers, monkeys, polar bears and pandas among others. There are also celebrity masks like Leonardo De Caprio and Donald Trump, and you can show different emotions on the face even after the effect has been applied.
These special effects can be applied by a simple swipe, and once you’re happy with the results you can share it on social media like Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. Choose the photo or video by tapping the camera or video icon and then scroll through the filters. Swipe the effect you like, and then tap the video or camera icon to apply the effect or record a video with the effect on.
Since the app applies the changes quickly you can see the results in an instant, and you can use the filters to record videos or take selfies with the effect on. Depending on the effect you chose you can even talk or nod. MSQRD is a fun app and definitely worth trying out.
