Fat Cats with an Android App.

If you’re interested in having some silly fun (or maybe getting sent to the doghouse by your significant other) here’s an app for you.

FatBooth is an app that takes a head-on photo of a person’s face and adds.. oh.. maybe 200 pounds. It’s dead simple to use and generates surprisingly good results.


Using the app goes something like this:

Step 1: Start the app and press the button to bring up the camera.

Step 2: Line up the person’s shot (face-on photos only.. zoom with your feet to fill the outline overlaid on the camera) and snap the photo.

Step 3: It will do some facial feature detection, but then you have to simply tweak the eyes, mouth and chin locations. This is dead simple to do.

Step 4: Press the button and let it do it’s thang.


A few things to note:

1. Perhaps it’s more of a statement about how body-conscious our society is, but getting your wife or girlfriend to let you try this thing out may be very difficult.

2. Note that there is a delete button available once you view the results. Respect your photo subjects, offer to delete the photo if they want you to. Don’t be a dick.

3. You also have the opportunity to save the photo (either before and/or after photos) to your gallery. Once again, don’t be a dick.


Oh.. Since the Internet Forgets Nothing ™ I am not posting any before/after photos of myself.. however as if all this magic wasn’t enough, I can also confirm that IT WORKED ON MY CAT!



Sorry Midge. I had to post it.
