You can now star in your own professional porn video

By Photoshopping your face onto a porn actor’s face

Since the invention of the internet, every testosterone-filled teenager’s fantasy consists of starring in his or her own porn flick. With today’s camera technology, creating your own lewd home videos is as easy as taking a selfie.

However, emerging facial AI technology is shaping home-made porn in an all-new direction. With facial replacement software, it is now possible to “Photoshop” your face onto a porn actor’s face.

Recently, the porn industry made similar waves with the infamous deepfakes. Through the same technology, skilled individuals started superimposing the likenesses of famous celebrities onto the bodies of lookalike porn stars.

As one might imagine, the celebrity fantasy did not sit well with both the celebrities involved and privacy advocates. Eventually, sites banned the phenomenon altogether.

With this in mind, porn company Naughty America has turned the malicious technology on its head. Instead of using non-consensual images, the company is now offering to use the technology to insert customers into their favorite scenes alongside professional porn actors.

Even then, Naughty America’s services don’t stop there. In addition to one’s likeness, the company can also edit where the scene takes place. Among others, the company has provided sample clips of scenes switching from the bedroom to a beach.

For a fee, customers can send photos of themselves to Naughty America for editing. The company will then send the edited video for the customer’s private viewing.

Because it uses consent from both customer and actor, this service doesn’t traipse on the messy territory that its predecessor did. If anything, it proves that this specific kink really does exist somewhere in the world.

These new Ikea curtains fight indoor pollution by filtering air

Talk about being functional!

Published

Ikea has just announced groundbreaking technology that will not only add to your home decorating or homemaking ventures, as the brand has been apt to do; it will also help keep your living space cleaner by purifying indoor air.

This is Ikea’s Gunrid curtain and it works just like a plant: It breaks down harmful pollutants when it gets in contact with light. The fabric itself has undergone “mineral-based surface treatment” which enables it to destroy common indoor air pollutants like formaldehyde and odor. And since the tech is in the fabric, future products aren’t, in theory, limited to just curtains.

Unknown to most, indoor air pollution is a big deal with some living spaces found to have conditions five times worse than other parts of the world and a higher death toll than outdoor pollution. Mauricio Affonso, Product Developer at Ikea Range & Supply says, “We are creating an affordable and space-saving air purifying solution that also makes the home more beautiful.”

Ikea hopes to put these Gunrid curtains on shelves by 2020.
