Ice Cream Sandwich's new camera effects demoed [video]

Ice Cream Sandwich's new camera effects demoed [video]
For those of you excited about Android’s 4.0 release, Ice Cream Sandwich, there are some fun features in addition to the ones built purely on function. One fun feature is the addition of real-time video effects.

Tech blog, The Verge, had an opportunity to sit down with Matias Duate, Senior Director of Android User Experience at Google, and see first hand some of the new video effects.

The native camera app inside Ice Cream Sandwich allows real-time video effects to be applied on the fly rather than recording the video then rendering the effect. There is also a feature called “Silly Faces” that allows the user to render effects on a specific parts of the screen rather than the entire video. Some examples of this are the ability to distort just a person’s head, eyes, nose, or mouth to create a crazy, fun effect.

Check out the video below to see some of these effects in action.
