With augmented reality technology becoming more readily available, young designers are creating face filters for social media platforms. Design reporter Gunseli Yalcinkaya picks five of the most interesting examples.
Berlin-based digital artist Johanna Jaskowska looked to the way light reflects on a person’s face when creating her range of shimmering and shiny face filters.
Beauty3000 transforms the user’s face into a glossy, “plastic” surface, while Techgnosis has a slightly pixelated quality with iridescent colouring.
“I like to experiment with lights in the virtual space that will stage and highlight the user’s face. Kind of like we would do for a photo portrait in a studio, but with AR, the model is you and me,” she told Dezeen

Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
