Zombie Booth review
We review Zombie Booth, an Android app that lets you see what you'd look like as a member of the shambling undead
For some of us, getting up early in the morning for a long day at work can make you feel like you’re a member of the undead, but if you need to add that additional layer of authenticity then you can do a lot worse than download Zombie Booth for your Android phone.
Zombie Booth is a cunning piece of photo manipulation software that takes facial images and converts them into slavering 3D monsters. You can either snap a new photo or use an existing one from your phone’s gallery, but the affect is always the same - it grants you a seriously disturbing view on what you’d look like should the zombie apocalypse occur.
The process takes a few seconds to execute, but the results are worth it. Zombie Booth scans each photo to work out where your eyes, mouth and other facial features are. It then overlays zombie like attributes - such as rotting flesh and a massive, blood-soaking set of teeth - and adds a 3D effect to the image.
Before your very eyes your zombie doppelganger springs to life, complete with blood-curdling moans and screams. If left to his (or her) own devices the zombie will simply groan and gaze around the screen, but if you tap the display with your finger, the face will look in that direction.
