3D Face Mask Generator
As part of Snap’s commitment to fostering creativity, the company unveiled a 3D face mask generator. This innovative tool allows users to craft their own potentially viral self-expression Lenses, merging the power of Gen AI with Snap’s advanced face mesh capabilities. Users can now bring their creative visions to life within a matter of seconds, further democratising the lens creation process.
Despite recent staff reductions, Snap has revealed that a 330,000 developers are actively building on Snap’s AR platform, resulting in the creation of nearly 3.5 million Lenses. This statistic attests to the vibrant ecosystem on Snap for AR enthusiasts and developers alike.
Snap’s focus on AI was further emphasised during its first-ever APAC AR Day in India. Evan Spiegel, Snap CEO and Co-Founder, and Snap APAC President Ajit Mohan lauded the Indian creator community for their contributions to the AR landscape. Spiegel expressed optimism about the role of AI in breaking down barriers to creativity, particularly in the realm of augmented reality.
