Now’s your chance to find out with this free app from The Open University.
Create a PhotoFit of yourself, your friends or take our celebrity challenge and re-create the face of a famous person. You can share your Photofit with friends and view it in the gallery.
Scroll through the choices of eyes, noses, mouths, hair, jaws and even facial hair and spectacles, then using simple sliders you can even reshape each feature to make them wider, higher and adjust their position on the face as well as change the skintone.
By seeing how tricky it is to create an accurate PhotoFit, piecing together the face like a jigsaw, you’ll appreciate why The Open University has helped the police to develop a new system to describe suspects. This innovative approach uses the whole of the face reflecting the way our brains work – making it easier to recall individual faces.
Want to learn more? The Open University’s ‘Introducing the Social Sciences course’ is a great place to start. It’s an ideal introduction to psychology, social policy, criminology and other fascinating areas.
Learning to read and write Chinese characters presents two challenges to both non-native learners as well as Chinese children who first start learning characters:
- the complexity of characters, as an average character consists of about 12 strokes;
- matching characters with their pronunciation, pinyin and the meaning;
Chinese Characters First Steps tackles these two challenges on one screen to help you learn, recognize and remember the most frequently used characters in a systematic, friendly and fun way. Rather than having a textbook, audio device, dictionary and a notebook to write, you get the stroke-by-stroke writing, the native-speaker pronunciation, pinyin, English definition and instructions in one interactive experience.
The UK species dictionary is linked to the app too, so use it to have a go at identifying what you have seen and to win reputation points for getting it right!
Use the app to browse your own album of observations and to show your friends what you have seen. Any helpful comments or new identifications from the experts on iSpot will appear right there in your album as soon as they are made … these can often appear within minutes!
As well as getting help with your own observations of wildlife and nature you can also interact with others using the app. You can see what they are observing, filter and explore what they have seen in your vicinity through the “Around Here” feature, and also add comments, give identifications and agree with identifications posted by others.
There are tens of thousands of eyes out there already using iSpot, so check out the photo stream regularly to see the latest observations.
You will need to register with iSpot to use the app and this can be done directly, or by using your existing Facebook or Open University login.
We'd appreciate your feedback! Use the Android Marketplace or the Forum on the iSpot website to do this. http://www.ispot.org.uk/contact
