Mhoto Automatically Generates Music for Your Pics Based on a Photo’s Content

mhoto2

It might not be quite a trend yet, but associating sound with photos isn’t new either. Whether we’re talking about interesting photographs created with sound (like Martin Klimas’ paint photos) or about a camera that captures both sound and light, the idea of pairing sight and sound in photography has come up before.

Mhoto is a company with an idea along those same lines, only instead of capturing the sounds happening at the moment you take a photo, the company’s tech creates music based on a photo. Read more…

We’ve run across some neat web apps in the past — be it the Face to GIF app that lets you create animated GIFs with ease using your computer’s webcam, or something a bit more practical like UT’s enlarging and denoising app.

SnappyCam Lets iPhone Users Capture 20FPS at Full Resolution

SnappyCam 3 Screen 1

Take a look at that stock camera app on your iPhone. Does a fair job, doesn’t it? Then SnappyCam Pro 3.0 lands on it and makes you realize how truly slow the stock app takes photos. For your reference, it’s about 3-to-6 images per second at full resolution (assuming you’re using an iPhone 5).

SnappyCam, on the other hand, is able to take 20 full-resolution images per second on the iPhone 5. You read that right, a whopping 20 frames per second. It’s all thanks to John Papandriopoulos (who has a Ph.D. in electrical engineering) and his frustration with what he thought to be “inadequate” camera applications (we’re looking at you, stock camera app).
