Hail to our favorite Geek Goddess, Vera Sweeney! Thanks to her, a WYSK we love and admire, we now know about a fun new mobile app called Paper Camera that lets you see your still or moving world in a slick, cartoonish comic strip form. Think a-ha’s “Take On Me” video circa 1986… SO COOL!

Available for Android and Apple mobile devices, the app gives you real time cartoon and painting effects displayed directly on your camera feed! You can choose from a collection of cartoon/sketch/comic book/half tone/noir/neon and other effects.

It’s super simple to use… select any of the stylish effects while you’re taking a picture or shooting video and see the changes magically take over your screen in real time. Or you can apply the effects to your existing photos and videos that are already stored in your gallery.

We gave it a whirl and used the app to cartoon-ize our fearless founders. Here’s how Jen and Cynthia look in “Andy Pop” and “Pastel Perfect” style and how our work space looks in “Con Tours”. Not too shabby!
