ZombieBooth is an app that allows users to transform themselves into realistic-looking 3D zombies simply by taking a facial photo. Zombies wander around looking for human flesh while moaning and groaning, luring those who see them to a world of fear.
This new feature allows users to customize the zombie image created by adding items such as head coverings, eyes, mouths and wounds to create their own original zombie. The app is purchased using virtual money, with a choice of 66 items from customized buttons at the bottom left of the zombie image screen that allow users to create more than 500,000 types of zombie. Images and videos of customized zombies can be stored on mobile phone terminals and shared with friends, via e-mail, Twitter and Facebook.
ZombieBooth adopts the latest facial compositing technology of MotionPortrait, Inc. and was released in April 2010 in the iPhone (iOS) version series, followed by the Google Play (Android) version. It has been well-received not only in Japan but worldwide, including the United States, Great Britain and Germany. Our company will continue to offer unique services that amaze and stimulate people through ZombieBooth based on our one-of-a-kind MotionPortrait technologies.
