Edit your selfies with this new wildly popular Russian app

2 August 2017

Thinking of dyeing your hair or just fancy trying out mermaid locks? The app Teleport is here to help.

Developed by Russian entrepreneurs Viktor Kokh, Vladislav Urazov and Bogdan Matveyev, the app has quickly gained popularity among Russian bloggers and celebrities, who have been publishing selfies with vivid hair colours across social media.

The app, which is available in English, uses AI to apply the special effects and give it that flawless finish. Besides changing your hair colour you can also alter the background of the photo: the app lets you choose between images of various world cities, nature, and cartoon cats, or upload your own picture. You can see how other people have used the app by searching #teleport.

Will Teleport follow the success of the Russian-developed image editors FaceApp and Prisma, both of which also use AI?
