A new app called “My Talking Pet” has been giving content creators and everyday pet owners the chance to create funny content beyond the typical cat video. The app uses face sensor technology to pick up on the animal’s facial features, such as eyes, mouth and cheeks. It can then replay a pre-recorded voice memo, and your pet will actually seem like it’s repeating your own words.
Different from previous talking pet apps like “My Talking Tom”, this app allows the consumers to use their own pets’ animated image instead of using a made-up character. Simply take a picture of your pet, and watch the face sensor technology slowly animate the animal’s whole face.
Some of the results have been pretty amazing.
