About this project
LOOKSERY APP AT A GLANCE:
- A RICH SET OF VIDEO FILTERS: Record new messages or select video selfies from your phone gallery; edit in real-time with Looksery photo and video filters filters.
- MOST POPULAR MOBILE PLATFORMS: Cross-platform app for your iOS and Android devices.
- FILTER ADJUSTMENTS: A wide range of customizable parameters for filters.
WHAT WILL YOU GET?
Looksery is an app for photo and video messaging, where you can apply real-time filters and effects. The basic app, which you can get by pledging $5 or more, includes 10 well balanced presets, where several filters are combined together to be used simultaneously. You can make your face look thinner or fatter, change the size of your nose, and the shape of your chin.
It is very easy to create professional looking photos in Looksery. With just few taps on filters you can enrich colors, add vignette and make eyes look brighter:
THE MORE YOU PLEDGE, THE MORE YOU GET!
In addition to the basic set of effects we offer multiple PAID OPTIONS for your choice (check our rewards charts for details). There are fun filters, such as 3D avatars or astonishing effects to surprise your friends.
You can record videos with the talking scull or make a photo.
We track your emotions and filters repeat your moves.
Zombie filter will be applied when your mouth is wide open, so you can start recording a video with a normal look and suddenly transform yourself in a zombie.
Using 3D avatars you can express emotions in a very unique way. We track your face, and connect an avatar to your movements. Each avatar has its own style, and you are welcome to choose your favorite character!
PLEDGE $5 AND GET ONE PAID EFFECT FOR YOUR CHOICE!
THE HOSTING PLAN - DO I NEED IT?
We have developed our own code for video face tracking, and designed unique video filters which work in real-time. The Looksery app is programmed using C++, GLSL and ASM and we use some of the features of the OpenCV library. Our tracking and initialization algorithms are based on the Active Appearance Model.
Currently we have 5 patents pending, involving real-time face-tracking and the technology that modifies it.
The app has a user friendly interface and you can change your appearance with just a singe tap.

No matter how many people are on a video, Looksery recognizes the face closest to the center and tracks it quickly and precisely, simultaneously applying filters.
There are a number of real-time filters and effects for videos and photos that we have developed for you in our first version.

- CHANGE FACE SHAPE
- CHANGE CHIN SHAPE
- CHANGE EYE COLOR + SOFTEN SKIN + THINNER FACE + VIDEO COLOR FILTER

We are designing some funky new filters and crazy effects, so you can make fun and terrify your friends.
- Compatible with iPhone 5/5s/5c
- Requires iOS 7 or higher
The technology that drives Looksery was built from scratch by our team. We are the first company to bring the full power of such complex face tracking technology to mobile.
This means you can now do so much more than just adding a few generic pictures or animations to your media; it is the ability to completely modify your appearance and exchange video messages as 3D characters.
With Looksery you can explore different filters that change entirely the way you look and enhance videos. Each person has a unique Looksery experience, and we can't wait to see your perfect look!
We hope that our technology will give rise to a new generation of selfies and videos, but we need your support to make it real!
We have prepared a feast of great rewards: new filters and features, different storage plans and nice goodies, and of course special thanks to all our backers and their friends.

Risks and challenges
Our team is working hard to meet the deadlines of our roadmap, but there are certain issues that may take place:
1. Surely we have a beta prototype of our app, but it is still in the development process and we don't exclude unpredictable issues. It may take time to solve them.
2. App Store and Google Play reviews usually take up to 14 business days after submission. If they ask us to make changes the release may be posponed. We will make sure that all qualifications meet Apple’s and Google's standards for quicker approval time!
3. If there is a delay in the release of Android version, it may take more time to deliver rewards for backers who has Android devices.
You may find all project updates on our Kickstarter page. We are open for communication, please feel free to ask questions.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
