Photo App Creates Original Soundtracks Based On People’s Pictures
The Mhoto app analyzes digital photos and creates a soundtrack for it based on image brightness, saturation, and contrast.
Sometimes certain songs or tracks come to mind when we see a specific picture. It has something to do with our memories or things that we associate with that photo and song. Right now, it’s all in our brain, but what if we can have all that on an app?
Well, it looks like we already do. The Mhoto app can create an original soundtrack by analyzing digital photos. It uses a patent pending technology to analyze image properties like brightness, saturation, and contrast, and then use that information to create a soundtrack that fits the photo.
Users can upload photos and listen to the songs generated by the app or they can simply enjoy their ‘mhotos’ using their gadget or computer. Users can also choose the music genre they want their soundtrack to be based on.
According to an article on Engadget, the founders of the app worked with music producer Dub Killer on the music composition algorithm, and are looking into integrating facial recognition into the app to enable mood-based soundtracks as well.
The app is still in its development stage and the app’s website simply opens up to a sign-up page for interested beta testers. The creators are looking into licensing the app to other companies for their specific use. Tech companies like HTC, Samsung and China Mobile have reportedly shown interest in the app.
