Introducing Face Fun for iPhone

Face Fun, our latest app, is now live on the App Store. It is a crazy, fun and addicting app that automatically swaps the faces of friends, family, co-workers and anyone else you take photos of.

We have received some great feedback from those who have been testing it over the last several months, and we are excited to officially release it to everyone.

To celebrate the launch, we are giving away some awesome Apple prizes, including iPads, Apple TVs and a MacBook Air!  Visit us on Facebook and Twitter to enter for a chance to win.

Be sure to check out Face Fun on the App Store and let the laughs begin!

Codebooth takes 3rd at Codebits

Congratulations to Bruno de Carvalho (@brunodecarvalho) and his teammates Fred Oliveira (@f) and Fábio Batista (@fbatista) for their recent 3rd place finish at Codebits.

Codebits is Portugal’s Yahoo hack day. It’s the largest programming event in Portugal, bringing together programmers, security experts, designers, hackers and all sorts of people interested in the software world overall. Its most known feature is the 48 hour coding competition.

“Codebooth is a project for Codebits, a 48h coding competition. We built a smart photo booth that recognizes faces, emotions, clothes and gender. We also added a bit of natural language processing too so that it took voice commands and could respond to input like “show me all the happy people dressed in white” or “give me all the people dressed in orange”.”

It was the 3rd most voted project by the audience, in the 48 hour coding competition.

This is their 90 second video demo of what they built:
