A mustache for everyone
Four years before Snapchat released their face-decorating video filters, the very first live video mustache app appeared in the iPhone App Store in 2011. The now-archived app was called LiveStache, and used a novel iOS image processing technique to perform augmented reality at video frame rates on the now-outdated iPhone 3.
My role in all of this
I created this humorous app to share my love and enjoyment for mustaches and beards.
Years later, the modern processing power of mobile devices has increased by more than 1000%, allowing Snapchat developers to add animations and face alignment detection to vastly improve on the experience.
