Chilling New iPhone App from Japan’s Photo Manipulation Masters
Tokyo, Japan – Thanks to stunning online processing that shows just what your iPhone can do, ZombieBooth cranks up the fear factor to turn your photos of friends and family into an army of bloody, terrifying zombies. MotionPortrait’s cutting-edge technology takes a still photo and turns it into a living, breathing 3D movie that snaps and bays for brains right there on the iPhone screen.
Just fire up ZombieBooth, use the iPhone’s camera to take a snap of a friend (or use one from your Camera Roll) and wait for the magic to kick in while the MotionPortrait servers get to work. The result is as horrific as any SFX army of the undead you’ve seen on the silver screen – we’re not saying we can teach Hollywood to suck eggs, but our zombies are the real deal.
And, when you’re ready to spread the lust for brains, there’s a range of sharing options for getting your hideous avatar online through email and Twitter. What’s more, your ZombieBooth creations can also make the leap to our other smash-hit iPhone apps, PhotoSpeak and PhotoAvatar (both sold separately). Talking alien zombies, anyone?
Accompanied by full-blown horror sound effects, these creatures of the night are not for the faint-hearted or the very young – unless you want to induce heart attacks and nightmares, that is… Use with caution – you have been warned!
