There are thousands of ways to make a difference to your appearance in the modern world. You could dye your hair, get down the gym and start losing some weight, or maybe get an android app that changes your eye color. Wait, what? That’s right, there are a number of apps that really do allow you to transform the color of your eyes from dull to dazzling.
Alright, so technology hasn’t advanced so far as to actually allow you to change your eye color through your phone, but what it can do is take your photo and digitally apply a new color to your pupils, which gives you the chance to try out a new look which you may be able to achieve in reality through the use of some colored contact lenses.
Android App That Changes Your Eye Color
So What Are These Apps Hoping To Achieve?
These apps, such as the market leading Eye Color Studio, do set out to give users an experience of what they could look like if they actually went ahead and transformed themselves, however much of the apps purpose is to entertain and create brand awareness, rather than to change people’s lives. This might not be such a bad thing, though, because as users we prefer to feel as if we are in control of our own fashion and beauty, and don’t like to be forced in to making any changes we’re not totally comfortable with.
Using facial recognition and simulation technology, some of the styles you can create with some of these apps are absolutely incredible, and a feat of engineering in their own right. You are allowed to try hundreds of different colors and effects on your own eyes, and the app does produce some brilliantly realistic results, as well as some very scary alien eye styles.
If You Find A Color You Like, Can You Actually Change To It?
While there have been reports that surgery can change eye color, it’s probably something that most people would say they won’t be going in for any time soon; would you really want to risk your vision all for the sake of the color of your eyes? In reality, you’re probably more likely to change your eye color using some form of coloured contact lenses, which, it turns out, do not actually affect your vision at all. Instead, they are simply plastic inserts which change the color of your eye to something a little bolder, or to a totally crazy pattern instead.
Thanks to excellent android apps such as Eye Color Studio, we’re in a better position to be able to choose a good eye color for ourselves, rather than wasting money on contacts without a clue how they’re going to look. Technology on our phones is sometimes said to have some strange uses, and if you’d asked me twenty years ago whether I’d be using my Nexus 4 to see how I’d look with different colored eyes, I’d have told you that you were crazy (and asked what a Nexus 4 was, I suppose!). However now, it’s clear that facial recognition software is here to stay, and will likely transform the way we assess our appearance even more in the future.
