CALABASAS, Calif., April 1, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Augmented reality leader FaceCake Marketing Technologies, Inc., creator of the Swivel® Virtual Dressing Room, ShadeScout®, and the browser-based CAKE™ AR, released "In the Paint" today just in time for the College Basketball Championship Finals! The augmented reality Facebook app enables users to show their team spirit by virtually applying fan face paint in real time using their webcam online.
Fun and frictionless, face paint designs automatically apply, moving with users as though they're looking in a mirror, so that fans can instantly cheer on the North Carolina Tar Heels, Syracuse Orange, Oklahoma Sooners, and Villanova Wildcats using the new app. Fans can Try-On any of the tournament teams' colors, and snapshots can easily be shared with friends, used as a cover photo, saved to an album, downloaded, or posted as a profile picture. Like FaceCake's revolutionary CAKE online shopping platform, "In the Paint" does not require a download, plug-in, user input, or special equipment. All users need is a webcam and an internet connection to have a real-time augmented reality experience.
"March Madness has always been one of the biggest sporting events in my family, so I'm especially excited to debut 'In the Paint' for fans," said Linda Smith, Founder and CEO of FaceCake. "Making these augmented reality experiences easy to use and access is a primary focus of ours. With 'In the Paint,' fans can instantly get their game face on just in time for the finals!"
