Periodically, while scrolling through the sea of content that appears on my social media feeds, I come across a sponsored post that is promoting a product.
In this case, I saw a post promoting an iPhone app, Lumyer.
Here’s a quick review of Lumyer
This picture of my daughter was magically enhanced to become something else.
This is what it became.
You’ll notice it became a video file. Well, that’s okay because I can still send it in a text and post in on Facebook or Instagram seemlessly.
There are myriad options for overlaying filters within the app. Oh, I did have to pay $1.99 to remove the watermark on my images / videos.
Try it out and have some fun.
Nintendo sure isn’t complaining, and neither are its stock holders. Market value for Nintendo has increased by $7.5 billion, according The Verge. Absolutely insane. This game is not only sweeping the nation, it’s becoming a phenomenon.
Hats off to Nintendo though, they’ve managed to create a game that successfully mixes reality with virtual reality. It’s getting people outside, walking around … but they’re all on their phones and not interacting much with other human beings. You can decide whether or not that’s good.
P.S. I read one account that states Pokemen Go has full access to read your Gmail. Just keep that in mind. Potential privacy concern.
