Once again, Instagram has come up with a filter to answer life's question we all know we secretly needed an answer to... Which Disney character are you? We all think we know which character we are, but the all seeing Instagram should really tell us for sure. Besides, we all are Disney princesses or princes. To figure out what Disney character you are through the almighty Insta, there are 2 ways to do it. **MAKE SURE YOUR INSTAGRAM IS UPDATED IN YOUR APP STORE** Go follow B100 on Instagram and look at our story. and click the title of the filter under our handle in the top left corner. A gray bar will appear on the bottom of your phone with the option to "try it" in the left corner. Select it and start a selfie video to show the world which character you get. The second way @arnopartissimo created this beautiful filter, so all you need to do is go to his profile if our's doesn't work. Click the "Which Disney Character are You?" filter and hit "try it" in the bottom left corner. With both options there is the ability to save it to your camera for future use as well to show your friends which Disney character you are and which character they are. Make sure that you have your camera in selfie mode or it won't work. You also have to be facing the camera straight on for it to recognize you. Also, if it doesn't start shuffling, try tapping the icon to get it going. Tag us in your Insta Stories, send them to us on the B100 app or DM us on our social medias to let us know which Disney character you are! Connor and JT have posted which character they are on the B100 Instagram. One Instagram creator's augmented reality homage to Disney's deep bench of animated characters has earned him fifteen minutes of fame. Taking a page from the enchanted book attraction at the Sorcerer's Workshop of Disney California Adventure, content creator Arno Partissimo published an Instagram AR camera effect called "Which Disney" that spins a virtual roulette wheel to match users with their true Disney spirit animal or human. Built with Facebook's Spark AR platform, the Instagram camera effect has found its way to the cameras of celebrities like High School Musical alumnus Vanessa Hudgens (below, left), who seems pretty enthralled with the experience, as well as TV star Rhiannon Fish (The 100, Home and Away). Images by Vanessa Hudgens/Instagram, Rhiannon Fish/Instagram As a result, Partissimo's creation has gone viral, which has helped him to reach nearly 200,000 followers on Instagram within days of launching the camera effect this week. To access the effect, search for @arnopartissimo in the Instagram app for iOS or Android and then look for the Disney logo among his Instagram Story Highlights. While the experience is meant to simulate a kind of personality trait monitor to match people with specific Disney characters, the Instagram camera effect actually relies on random number generation. In my limited testing, I did land Ursula in three out of eight times and characters from The Little Mermaid in five out of eight attempts, so maybe not? While the vast majority of characters come from the Disney animation camp, I did stumble upon Dory from Finding Dory, which comes from Pixar. Therefore, shouldn't the inclusion of intellectual property from an acquired company open up the options to include Star Wars and Marvel characters, too? While this all looks like fun and games, Facebook competitor Snapchat has demonstrated how viral AR experiences can translate into financial gains. Snap reported daily active user growth of 7% in the second quarter, which the company attributed to the popularity of the Gender Swap and Baby Face AR Lenses that debuted over the same time frame.
