DOVER, Del., Feb. 14, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- A group of investors, including co-founders of Prisma and MSQRD, announce Ommy. The investors that launched 2 of the hottest new apps of the 2016 continue to push the envelope. They now present an app that creates a set of emojis that are similar to users' very own facial features based off of one photo.
Unlike other apps, Ommy creates a unique emoji using artificial intelligence from users simply taking a selfie. Ommy removes the hassle of personalizing your emoji, instantly creating an image of users based off many styles: funny, love, cartoon, rage, etc. "My experience in neural networks and app development gave me this idea. I wanted to create personalized emoticons based off of users' selfies," creator Dmitry Koltsov stated. Koltsov is the developer of Love Collage, which creates collages of photos that allows users to edit with texts, stickers, photo frames and more.
The idea of Ommy was developed from scratch in just a few months. In October 2016 Ommy raised $1M funding from Haxus venture accelerator that allowed the team to complete the product and perform open beta testing. Now the product launches and features a new "Love" collection of stickers especially for Valentine's day.
Ommy uses neural networks, so each new user will help to make the product better. While neural networks will be learning, the team will be working hard to release new styles of emojis and new features. Technology created by the team will provide cartoon-looking 3D reconstruction of a user's head from a single selfie in the near future. Ommy also uses a new feature of iOS 10 and offers iMessage extension in order to improve user experience.
Ommy will be the first customer to use the new Prisma Cloud feature by Servers.com, enabling Ommy to use the same infrastructure that accommodated the growth of Prisma.
Founded in June 2016, Ommy is the first app that creates a set of emoticons that are similar to your face. Ommy processes your photo using neural networks. For more information, please visit www.ommy.com.
