If you've been longing to make your photos a lot more interactive, there's a new app launching today that’s set to cure your itch. The mad scientists at Fyuse have come up with some incredibly cool spatial technology that blends photography and video to create a unique and interactive experience, all from your iOS or Android device.
With its unique ability to stitch together a series of photographs taken from different angles, Fyuse can be thought of as Instagram for 3D photos. To capture a spatial image, you simply begin moving your phone around various axes or let your subject move through the frame and Fyuse will then join these images into a seamless, smooth and blur free 3D image that you can later interact with. While the image captured in Fyuse is best viewed on your mobile device thanks to its touch and gyroscopic capabilities, they can also be shared embedded on the web for all to see. In addition to its 3D capture and display tools, Fyuse also comes with Pintrest-style galleries where you can save your favorite collections as well as various filters to change the look of your captures.
Fyuse’s CEO Radu Rusu describes his motivation behind creating the app with this quote: “Ten years ago I realized something was missing. A photo is a moment in time. A video captures time. But what about a moment in space? This is my daughter Emma (http://fyu.se/v/ca3be38b7). As you move the phone, you can see her from different angles - as if you had a window looking into the past. This captures so much more than a photo - her laugh, the way I hold her, the way she moves her little hands. My team has been working on this for the last 2 years. I can’t wait to share it with the world."
Fyuse officially launched this morning and can be downloaded via the iTunes app store here.
