Mind-Blowing Video App Can Transform Anyone Into A Hottie

Forget about Photoshop. This video application is so amazing that it defies belief. It can take any video, identify people and change their physical attributes automagically. Yes, it has a breasts slider.

At the beginning it looks like a joke, but MovieReshape is very real. Created by Arjun Jain, Thorsten Thormählen, Hans-Peter Seidel and Christian Theobalt at the Max Planck Institut Informatik, this system allows anyone to easily manipulate "the body shape and proportions of a human actor in arbitrary video footage" by just using sliders in a control panel. Muscular level, breast girth, waist girth... you can even modify the stature of whoever you want by just moving a slider to the right of left.

How does it work

First, MovieReshape identifies the human actors in a movie, using shape recognition. It matches the shapes to three-dimensional bodies taken from a large database of models. Once this step is done, the program matches the 3D model to the position of the actor in the movie. At this point, it presents you with different sliders to modify the body.

When the user changes a parameter, like the height of the model, the software warps the image to match the change in a realistic way. At any time, you can render the changes, modifying the entire movie.

In other words: Using this application, any women can get a perfect Christina Hendrick's shape and any man can look like a Calvin Klein underwear model. Our virtual life is about to get as perfect as dating sites are going to get deceitful. [Max Planck Institut Informatik]
