Picture Yourself as Someone Else With Funny New Face Craze! App

New Entertainment App Face Craze! Lets Users 'Try On' New Faces and Share Their Looks Worldwide

LOS ANGELES, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 06/18/12 -- Ever wonder what you'd look like if you were somebody else... if you were born in another part of the world... or you were a different sex? Well, stop wondering -- there is finally an app for that. Face Craze! is the new entertainment application from CJE APPS that allows users to take a photo of themselves or others and transform their face into a whole new look. Face Craze! uses advanced photo-morphing technology to morph, mash and meld people's faces with thirty-six quirky models to create a hilarious new look.

Simply snap a photo of yourself or a friend, or choose one from your existing library, and select a model's face. Face Craze! instantly superimposes your facial features onto the model's, seamlessly blending the two while automatically rendering the photo in real-time with your new appearance. Photos can quickly be shared with friends via Facebook, Twitter or email and also easily saved to your phone library.

Face Craze! is the brainchild of brothers Cory and Barry Schneider. Inspiration for the app struck while the two were at a New England Patriots game with their mom, who was talking about how badly she always wanted a daughter. The boys both laughed at the idea of what their "hairy" sister would look like, imagining themselves with longer hair and better cheekbones! And that's when a light bulb went off. They did some research on face morphing technology and found out there weren't any apps in the marketplace that enabled users to actually "implant" their features into the framework of other people's faces. The brothers quickly set about developing Face Craze!

"Face Craze! is meant to be a fun, entertaining way to play with face morphing technology to see what you or one of your friends would look like as a different person," says co-founder Cory Schneider. "Our technology does an amazing job of transforming faces and the resulting pictures are great conversation starters. We know it's a silly idea, but that's the great thing about mobile technology... there are thousands of serious apps that make people more productive, we just want to make them laugh."

A recent graduate of Arizona State University, 22 year-old Cory Schneider previously worked in online marketing for a precious metal recycling firm before joining his brother to start CJE APPS. Also a fellow ASU graduate, Barry Schneider has several years of experience working with San Francisco-area technology firms.

The $0.99 Face Craze! app is available for iOS 3.1.2 and later iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad devices at the iTunes App Store. To download Face Craze! visit http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/face-craze!/id528948265?mt=8 and watch the YouTube app demonstration at http://youtu.be/9SEc59ijtqU
Currently a version is in development for Android.

When talking IoT we often focus on the devices, the sensors, the hardware itself. The new smart appliances, the new smart or self-driving cars (which are amalgamations of many ‘things'). When we are looking at the world of IoT, we should take a step back, look at the big picture. What value are these devices providing. IoT is not about the devices, its about the data consumed and generated. The devices are tools, mechanisms, conduits. This paper discusses the considerations when dealing with the...
