Love it or hate it, the iPad and other tablets are becoming more woven into how we expand our creative thinking. Just as the saying goes “There’s an app for that,” now we’re seeing apps being used in very creative ways.
One that caught my eye late last week was from Mashable’s “10 Ingenious iPad Self-Portraits” article. I enjoy how people take a simple thing, like a picture on an iPad, and add their creative twist to it.
Now let’s take it up one step and add, I hate to say it, a 3D effect. MacStories posted a story showcasing an interesting use of the iPad 2’s front facing camera.
Regarding how the app works, creators Jeremie Francone and Laurence Nigay said, “We track the head of the user with the front facing camera in order to create a glasses-free monocular 3D display.”
Basically, using the iPad 2’s built in front-facing camera, the app is able to simulate a three dimensional experience that has to be seen to be believed.
