The trio of apps is the first installment of a series of photography "appsperiments" that Google plans to release. It is partly inspired by Google's Motion Stills app that was first introduced past year. Storyboard is one of three experimental apps being tested by the company that will turn your videos into comic strips-I am sure that will get a lot of people excited. The apps were partly inspired by another Google app called Motion Stills, which helped "converts short videos into cinema-graphs and time lapses using experimental stabilization and rendering technologies".
The company's new photo apps have similarities to some products by other developers that are already available. Once you give the app the go-ahead, it starts automatically taking selfies every time it senses that you've stopped moving, creating an experience that's a little like a photo booth or a personal fashion photo shoot.
The Storyboard app is now only available only on Android and it will transform your videos into a storyboard-style layout as seen in comic books. "(The default disclosure tells us "what", but you must disclose to the user "why")", the message explained.
Last but not least there's Scrubbies, which lets users remix videos, DJ-style by scrubbing through a video clip and create video loops using their fingers. If you are a comic fan, the tech giant is experimenting on an app called Storyboard.
The third is called Scrubbies and can both control video and record you controlling the video. After the photo session, you can review the contact sheet and save either single photographs or the entire photoshoot. It lets users scrub video in either direction at varying speeds and captures the action as they scrub.
"The next generation of cameras. will have the capability to blend hardware and computer vision algorithms", said Alex Kauffmann, an interaction researcher at Google Research, in a blog post. Scrubbing with two fingers captures the playback so you can save or share it.
