VideoMask For iOS Is Pretty Much The Easiest Way To Creep Out Your Friends Ever [Update: Now Available]

I can tell just by looking at you: you’ve got too many friends. All you want to do is watch some Buffy The Vampire Slayer and work your way through that recipe book you got for Christmas 3 years ago, but your myriad friends are like “Come to the baaaar with us!”, or “Lets go white water raaaafting!”, or “We think you’re great and just want to spend time with you!” Nag, nag, nag. If only you had a way to scare them away for a while!

VideoMask for iOS might just do the trick. You know that lip-dubbing thing that Conan does? This lets you do that, from your iPhone. You start off by uploading a picture of whoever/whatever you want to turn into a “mask”, designate where the eye/mouth bits should be, then power up your iPhone’s front facing camera and blab away. Want your creepy video to be extra creepy thanks to accuracy? Just flip the switch to have VideoMask automatically color match your skin tone to that of the mask.

Sadly, it doesn’t look like this one’s available on the App Store just yet, though the developers are expecting it to hit sometime in the next few days. Once it’s up, it’ll go for just 99¢ a pop.

Update: VideoMask is now live in the App Store. You can find it here.
