WELLINGTON - Curious to see how you might look as a sumo wrestler? Well, an iPhone app can show you and that too without packing on any kilos.
The ‘SumoBooth’ app, developed by Tokyo-based MotionPortrait Inc, a subsidiary of the Internet-linked So-net Entertainment Corp, allows users to upload a photo of their face taken with their phone.
The images are processed to add pounds and the wrestlers’ trademark hairstyle with a topknot. The app will also record voices and alter them to give users a sumo wrestler’s distinctive husky sound.
The app is available for 1.82 NZ dollars.
“We do a lot of apps involving faces - we have one with zombies - and we thought that turning people into sumo wrestlers would be kind of fun,” Stuff.co.nz quoted Masaharu Yoshimori, chief planning officer at the company.
“For this particular app we thought it would be nice to show Japanese culture to the world, and have fun at the same time,” said Yoshimori. (ANI)
