By the always brilliant Iorama Studo – The Jerks is a new app that uses body tracking technology to animate a bunch of fun jerky characters. Whilst this sort of technology has been around for a long time (think Jar Jar Binks and Gollum), the improvements in phone cameras and the amount of processing power that can be held in your hand, means that now we can all play. The app is super simple to use (it’s minimalistic interface is thing of beauty), no doubt aimed at a younger audience, but this big kid has been dancin around all week. The software automatically picks up on any human form, just select your character, and git down. You can also key out the background giving a completely 2d cartoon finish. Feels like this is just a hint of what is to come. Fun for days. You can get The Jerks app here. The Jerks app trailer below.
The recent explosion of non-refungible tokens – that is, digital items that can be stored on a digital ledger (blockchain) has been overwhelming.
