Selfies And Augmented Reality: A Match Made In Cyberspace

In 2015, Snapchat users were introduced to one of the most iconic selfie features we know today: the filter. The “Rainbow Barfing” filter became an instant hit and ushered in a new era of unique selfies. Using digital facial mapping technology, any user was able to virtually “put on” these filters that conforms to the face perfectly and in real-time. But there’s more to facial mapping tech than just enhancing our selfies.

Security, especially for our personal information, is always in question. Many of us protect our phones with passwords or pins and simply hope no one guesses it. With the release of the iPhone X, Apple took its user’s security to the next level with Face ID. For these users, a digital face scan is all it takes to get in to their device and is virtually unhackable because, after all, who else has your exact face?

What do Pokemon Go, Snapchat filters, and bank security all have in common? Augmented reality. Take a look at this infographic brought to you by Frames Direct for more on how AR is changing not only how we see entertainment, but also how we approach security and beyond.
