Google Launches New Camera App ‘Sprayscape’

Google’s Android Experiments, a lab it launched last year to see new, creative options for the mobile platform, has created a brand new camera app.

The app is called “Sprayscape,” and, as Google calls it, it’s a camera app that allows users to take “VR-ish” photos. Google sees it as a way to smash together photo taking and virtual reality, all while letting users “spray” some interesting results.

To make it work, users simply tap the screen to spray onto the canvas, or they can hold their finger down on the display to capture more of their environment. That is captured on a 360-degree sphere, and the pictures captured will be stacked atop one another.

You can share the pictures you spray through a link in a text message or through social media.

Here’s a video showing it off:
