MouthOff

Lots of interesting new animation-related iPhone apps are being released, and I’m going try and write about as many as I can on the Brew. Mouthoff is an iPhone app that applies a crude animated lip-sync to voice inputs into the phone. It’s kind of like Clutch Cargo in reverse–instead of cartoons with human mouths, it’s real people with cartoon mouths. It can be downloaded for $1 from the iTunes store. Here’s an example of how it works:

    Too bad it’s only a opening and closing mouth detecting sound, because it’s feels too much like a cheap gadget this way (well, that’s what it is, but there’s always a way to do something of this kind actually interesting and uh, “cute”).

    wow that rules!

  • Galen Fott

    Don’t forget the very cool iChalky!

  • Mike Fontanelli

    Let’s see one with a cute animated lit cigarette! (We may as well get as much mileage out of cartoon smoking as we can now, before it all goes the way of Disney’s censored PECOS BILL “rolling the cigarette” sequence.)

    I don’t have an iPhone, but I’d actually buy that app if I did.

    Wouldn’t mind seeing an ‘anime’ setting where the mouth is only two or three drawings of it open and closed and still goes out of sync with your voice! ^_^
