A developer erased his face on video using the iPhone X camera

Thanks to the TrueDepth camera in the iPhone X, we are starting to see more developers start to take advantage of the camera to come up with some interesting applications.

The app uses the TrueDepth camera to camouflage the user facing the camera. Now it seems that if you're looking for a way to completely mask your face, developer Kazuya Noshiro might have come up with a way.

Noshiro admitted he has no clue what the technology can be used for. The developer himself admits that there is no use for that and joked that "if you want to make your face transparent, we're recruiting". So in other words, he likely first recorded what was behind him, then masked out his face - bar his eyes and mouth - and inserted the background.

Noshiro's app uses a fixed camera placement to get a picture of the background imagery before applying the invisible face mask, allowing for the transparency effect.

County Health Chief: Not Too Late for Flu Vaccination
Receiving the flu vaccine is the most effective way to protect yourself and others from getting the flu. Scott Lindquist, state epidemiologist for infectious diseases, in a statement.

Face ID on the iPhone X can do all sorts of complicated rendering tasks based around your face, from animoji karaoke to playing games just by using your eyebrows.

Noshiro, who is the CEO of a gaming company called ViRD, made the app on Japanese game development platform Unity. Or, you could edit the face of one of your favorite actors in a movie.

When will we see it in the App Store? Oops, we mean on your backdrop!
