Earlier this month, Snapchat revealed plans for a complete redesign, hoping to combat sluggish user growth. Following the introduction of “augmented reality” features and “dancing hot dogs” for Halloween, the social media app has unveiled another addition.

Using its patented “object-recognition” technology, Snapchat is allowing its users to access special filters that deliver “contextually-aware graphics;” the new features are triggered by simply capturing visuals of the appropriate objects.
