Wombo: this is how the fashion ‘app’ that makes selfies sing
There are several applications that take advantage of image analysis algorithms and neural networks that are capable of simulating the movement of a face to give a new (or different) life to a photo or video.
It is done by deepfakes (which change one face for another in a video, copying the gestures to make them credible) or ‘apps’ such as DeepNostalgia (which animates old photos) or FaceApp, which allows us to envision how we will look old (or how we would be if we would have been born with another sex).
The latest novelty is Wombo, a free application for Android or iPhone that animate a photo and transform it into a video, making the person portrayed sing, move, and his mouth follow the audio. (Also read: He won millions in games of chance and now lives as a homeless person)
How does Wombo work?
The operation of Wombo is very simple:
-Install the application (it’s free).
-Choose the image that we want to animate (taking a photo at the moment or using one from the gallery).
-Select the song that the photo will “sing”.
-Wait for the servers to generate the animation (it takes a while).
And ready. The video can be downloaded to the phone to share on social networks. It does not do magic and it lacks development; Above all, it has a hard time simulating the background, so it will work best if the background is flat (that is, if there is little detail behind the face).
The application also has a premium version, which speeds up the generation of the video and eliminates ads.
