Kids Are Going to Love the iPhone X’s Animoji Feature

The Apple Special Event took place today and what a spectacle. There was a lot to take in, to say the least. And between the new iPhones, the 4K video, and the 40 million songs on a smartwatch, it would be easy to miss out on the real star of the show: facial recognition-powered emojis. If you’re wondering, yes, they’re just as adorable as you’re picturing.

Thanks to the new facial recognition technology in the new iPhone X, users will be able to send and receive these playful emojis in messages between friends with a few swipes of your finger. In addition to the facial recognition technology, the animojis will be able to record and send voice messages that will coordinate with the moving image.

If your child has ever gone on an emoji rampage through your inbox, you know that this will provide hours of fun for your little one. From robots and unicorns to cats and chickens, the possibilities are literally and truly endless. And, for the lucky fans of toilet humor, there is the infamous poop emoji. That’s right, you can make a poop emoji talk. What a world.

Fortunately, this is not the only thing Apple’s facial recognition technology was dreamt up for. Dubbed Face ID, the tech will allow iPhone users to unlock their phones and access Apple Pay for quick and easy transactions. By mapping your face with thousands of infrared dots, you can be sure that you’re the only one accessing your phone, even in the dark. But let’s be honest, the ability to make a poop emoji talk is the real game-changer here.
