Homemade Halloween costumes showing the creativity of the manufacturer are always better than commercial versions. The same applies to virtual customers.
In the spirit of the season, Snapchat offers six Augmented Reality costumes created by the Lens Studio community and available through Lens Explorer on Friday. In addition, the app will put one of these lenses in the spotlight every day before Halloween in the camera carousel.
Snap's Project Specter is Alie Jackson's horror collage. Snap often curates Jackson's work, previously featured in promotions for John Wick and Nike's Jordan Brand.
The remainder of the selected six include Medusa Head by Anrick Bregman, Pierced by Clara Bacou, Puppet Master of Sava Nozin, Gius Saputo's Fire Bending, and Soul Selector by Aaron Clifford.
You can access the lenses themselves by searching for their titles via the Lens Explorer in the app or clicking on the titles above to access their snapcodes (which we have embedded below for simplicity).
It's an impressive selection, but if it's not enough, you'll have to scare others. It's quite possible that another effect is available through Lens Explorer.
"Snapchat now enables billions of daily AR experiences, with each of our daily active users interacting with Augmented Reality on average almost 30 times a day." This intense involvement with Augmented Reality has made Snapchat an attractive platform for developers and developers to develop and distribute new augmented reality experiences, "said Snap's CEO, Evan Spiegel, in prepared comments on the company's third quarter financial results.
"To date, our community has created over 600,000 lenses in Lens Studio, with world-class community lenses achieving billions of views on Snapchat – in just a few years A thriving augmented reality ecosystem built in which users, developers and businesses benefit from using our platform and tools. "Brand experiences, Snap can not rest on its laurels. Facebook has its own AR creator platform called Spark AR, which is now available for publishing camera effects on Facebook and Instagram. In this case, users gain because the reality-distorting effects of creating entertaining photos and videos are not neglected.
