Storyboard, Selfissimo! and Scrubbies: Google's new photography apps with experimental technology

Google Interaction Researcher Alex Kauffmann took to the Google Research Blog to unveil three new photography apps. The Selfissimo, which is also the most fun app of the three, is available for both Android devices and iPhones.

These three apps - Storyboard, Selfissimo!, and Scrubbies, are a part of "appsperiments" inspired by Google's Motion Stills app. Google is asking users for feedback on its appsperiment releases so it can further refine its computer vision and AI technologies. Well actually, Google is calling them "appsperiments", or experimental apps that Google is releasing out into the wild. Tap the screen to start a photoshoot.

Exclusive to Android is Storyboard, an Appsperiment that selects six frames from a single video and arranges them into a comicbook-style strip before applying certain saturation and brightness settings to each frame. As illustrated in the GIF above, the apps automatically snaps a selfie every time you pose. The app will take a photo each time you change poses or move the phone slightly to trigger the next photo.

"For each accessibility capability declared, you must have an accompanying disclosure to describe the app functionality that the Accessibility Service permission is enabling for your app". Tap on the screen to end the session, select the pictures you want, and save them individually or the entire shoot.

Another feature that Android Police spotted during its teardown of v15 is pre-call support for dual-SIM handsets. Shoot a video in the app and then remix it by scratching it like a DJ. You could summarize an event just by recording one video, rather than remembering to take gobs of photos.

Now only available for iOS, Scrubbies allows you to change the speed and direction of video playback to create looping videos. Scrubbies lets you manipulate the speed and direction of video playback to create visual loops of selected moments. But these are interesting apps and if they get good reception it is even possible that they may become permanent part of Android camera app in future. Performing the same scrubbing operation with two fingers captures playback for saving or sharing.
