Zombify Yourself With ZombieMirror AR+ iOS App

ZombieMirror app puts the aaaRRRRRRRRRRrrrrr back in "AR"

As of last Friday you could use augmented reality facial tracking to turn yourself into Prince William or Princess Kate, but Aptronic has done it again with their ZombieMirror AR+ iOS application for the iPhone 4 and iPad 2 (you need the rear-facing camera).

Yes, that includes Scruffy, the family Zombie. Er, I mean, cat.

 

Much like the Royal Wedding app (also by Aptronic), the ZombieMirror application utilizes the facial-tracking SDK of Paris / Los Angeles-based AR solutions firm Total Immersion to recognize your face (or the face of a friend or random passerby- though I highly discourage trying to take photos of people you don't know) and overlay digital information on top of it- in this case, Zmobification awesomeness. You can also "configure" your Zombie visage to include or omit effects like pockmarked cheek, dangling eye, and, quite simply, hatchet- amongst other things.

 

Total Immersion's blog features this delicious snippet:

 

WARNING: in the event of a zombie apocalypse and your inevitable degeneration into zombiehood, ZombieMirror will only serve to make you an even freakier zombie. Please seek urgent medical attention in the form of a shotgun blast to the face.

Thanks guys, I'll add that to my contingency plan for the Zombie Apocalypse: "iPhone useless in combating zombies." Download the app here, and check out more photos after the break.
