Is it just me who gets excited about new and improved ways to use technology? If no, then hear this!
A brand-new app lets you copy items from your surroundings right onto your laptop screen. It works literally just like copying and pasting words or images on your laptop screen from a page into a programme, except with this app you can just grab whatever you want to copy from real life!
The app is called ClipDrop, and it was designed and programmed by Cyril Diagne. The aim of the app is to grab anything you can see with your camera and plop it right into apps on your Android, iOS or desktop.
Essentially, this app eliminates the process of taking a picture of something, cropping it out, sending it to your laptop and editing it on photoshop, and just goes from taking a picture of an object to pasting it in!
The app is still in its early stages, but the applications are quite unique! For now, the app offers a plug-in for Photoshop to optimise the transfer, and the best part is that the app doesn’t even require a cable or Bluetooth! It’s as simple as facing your phone camera towards the item you want to cut, and the app will cut the background out for you.
Aaand here it is..!!! 😱

Then, you just hover your phone over the screen and send the image straight onto your screen exactly where you place it.
Lately, Augmented Reality (AR) technology has been focused on placing digital items into the real world through your phone, so it’s cool that this app is switching it up!
Although still in Beta, the app is free to download to try it out for yourself! ClipDrop gladly gives new users five free photo clips to try the tech out, and if you really like it you can buy a yearly subscription to the full features of the app for $39.99.
If you’re a designer, art student, or someone who just wants to try the tech kind of like me, I really think this could help you out!
