MyIdol (iPhone app)

http://www.theverge.com/2015/4/23/84...cartoon-avatar

This goofy Chinese app turns you into the creepiest avatar possible

If you've been browsing Twitter, Instagram, or Vine lately, there's a good chance you've borne witness to the part-horrifying, part-amazing phenomenon that is My Idol: a free Chinese iPhone app that takes selfies and turns them into singing, dancing cartoon avatars dredged straight from the depths of the uncanny valley.
Now I wish I had an iPhone! I love some of the vids. Has anyone tried it here?

"Speechless" does not even begin to put appropriate words to it. SWIDT?
