3. Selfie-Enhancing Breakthrough

Researchers at MIT, Adobe and the University of Virginia have discovered a way to make your selfies look better.

Like filters, this new technology can change the color, hue, and brightness of a photo to make it look cooler. But instead of changing the whole photo, it focuses only on one part — your face.

It can turn a bright, greasy mug into a beautiful portrait in a few seconds, something no other app can do.
