LensIt video


Within our project we have been developing a concept of a mobile phone application that provides users with various lenses and filters to modify their pictures. Using this application user can experiment ‘distorting’ their face features. Data is then gathered on both the original facial characteristics and the parameters the user changed to ‘reshape’ it. This is according to the agreement users need to accept first in order to use the application. The collected data then would be available for the research and so we created this website to demonstrate results. Giving access to the dataset provides a platform for researchers and the public audience to discuss and share their thoughts about the use of modified lenses and filters. Furthermore, the website enables us to start project groups around the dataset, where it can be visualized or analyzed from a specific aspect of the academic debate.
