Selfies have become so popular that now we even have accessories for selfies like those popular (but ridiculous looking) selfie sticks, allowing people to take selfies without uncomfortably stretching their arms or gathering around in awkward poses.
However, if you’re looking for a simpler alternative, eyeSight Technologies have developed an Android selfie camera app that uses hand gesture controls to snap photos. You can simply place your Android phone down, pose with your friends and give Snapi a signal when you’re ready.
According to eyeSight’s official profile they are experts in Machine Vision and gesture recognition technology.
“The company delivers simple and natural user interactions with a multitude of devices including Smartphones, Tablets, PCs, TVs, Wearables (Glasses) and other digital devices, allowing touch-free device control with the swipe of a hand or point of a finger,” reads their official website.
The app can be set to take photos after a specific number of seconds following the hand gesture you make. If you’ve ever dropped your phone trying to hold it and press the snap button for a selfie, you’d know how useful a hand gesture feature can be to make all this so much easier.
Check out the official video below to see how Snapi works in action.
The app can use both the front and back cameras and all photos you take with Snapi are stored in your phone’s gallery by default.
Snapi is free to download and the app’s permissions are not invasive or alarming. If you’re looking for a gesture controlled selfie app, we recommend that you give Snapi a try.
