Zepeto lets you create a 3D character version of yourself

Everyone is obsessed with it!

Cute avatars have taken over social media! Everyone is posting their 3D characters using Zepeto, the newest online craze.

To put it simply, Zepeto is an app that allows you to create a 3D version of yourself. You can stylize and make your own emoji. It’s like a combination of Snapchat’s Bitmoji, Samsung’s AR Emoji, and Apple’s Memoji.

The app uses facial recognition technology to generate avatars. All users have to do is take a selfie or pull up an existing photo and upload it. (Pro tip: Use your best front-facing selfie to achieve a closer replica of yourself.)

When your avatar is generated, you can customize it to match your look in real life. After the character creation, you can dress up and decorate your home. It’s just like The Sims! You can also search for your friends through a unique code, since this app is originally a social media platform.

There’s also a feature called “Photo Booth,” which is the main reason why you’re seeing Zepeto all over social media. It allows you to take a photo of your 3D character on your own or with a group of friends. You can even customize it by adding a realistic background. If you’re into meeting people online, you can head over to the “Street” and greet other “Zepetos.”

The app allows your avatars to earn coins to splurge on fashion and home decorations by watching an ad or playing Flying Ghost, a carbon copy of Flappy Bird.

New features are on the way, but for the meantime, we can take all the photos we want and share them with everyone.

The app is currently ranked #1 on iOS. It’s available on both the App Store and Play Store.

Cyberpunk 2077 soars to 1M daily players after Edgerunners

The RPG gets a major milestone

Published

Cyberpunk Edgerunners

Following the release of its much-anticipated Edgerunners update and Netflix anime, Cyberpunk 2077 has reached a major milestone.

CD Projekt Red’s single-player, open-world sci-fi RPG has reached one million daily players (new and returning) ever since the patch was made available earlier in the month.

The Netflix anime, Cyberpunk: Edgerunners also debuted last September 13, further elevating the game’s popularity to new heights, so much so that is has become a Steam top seller yet again.

This achievement makes up for the game’s disastrous release in late 2020, when technical issues, particularly bugs, hounded its PlayStation 4 and Xbox One versions.

Enhanced for Next-Gen consoles

The Edgerunners update enhanced the game for Next-Gen consoles. It also gave players an opportunity to access in-game goodies inspired by the anime series such as new wardrobe and fresh weapons, as well as a host of new features and content to dig into.

Set in the futuristic Night City, Cyberpunk 2077 revolves around its protagonist V, a mercenary outlaw who needs to secure a one-of-a-kind implant — the Relic — which is the key to immortality.

In exploring the vast city controlled by corporations and highlighted by gang wars, players must customize their character’s cyberware, skillset and playstyle to overcome every obstacle they encounter.
