Google has three "Appsperiments" for mobile photography

Google has three

The latest version of Google's Phone app for Android devices comes just days after a previous version was launched on the Play Store.

Available on Android and iOS, as the name suggests Selfissimo! is for the lovers of selfies out there. The apps were partly inspired by another Google app called Motion Stills, which helped "converts short videos into cinema-graphs and time lapses using experimental stabilization and rendering technologies".

Google is releasing some new apps they call "appsperiments". Tap the screen to start a photo shoot. It lays them onto a comic-book style frame and applies one of six visual styles to the frames.

Selfissimo! is an automated selfie app which takes black and white pictures every time you pause to pose, so with everytime you strike a pose, a photo is automatically taken by the camera. Simply load your video into the app, wait a couple of seconds, and Google will present you with a comic strip with conventionalized effects.


The company is calling the free downloads Appsperiments (a not very witty combination of the words apps and experiments). Scrubbing with one finger plays the video. Then all you need to do is review the resulting contact sheet and select the images you'd like to save. The three new experimental apps, (err, appsperimentals) use experimental technologies such as stylization algorithms, object recognition, person segmentation, and efficient image encoding/decoding.

The three applications are now available for both the Android and iOS users. We expect the update to be soon available for general users with older version of Android.

Another feature that Android Police spotted during its teardown of v15 is pre-call support for dual-SIM handsets. Users can easily manipulate the speed and direction of a video playback to make video loops that highlight actions, capture amusing faces, and replay moments.

"The next generation of cameras. will have the capability to blend hardware and computer vision algorithms", said Alex Kauffmann, an interaction researcher at Google Research, in a blog post. "Swipe back and forwards on the video to 'remix" it. Swipe the video with two fingers to record the playback.
