The first full trailer for the Barbie movie was released on April 4, and safe to say, it got the internet buzzing. The upcoming film from director Greta Gerwig looks really promising — but it wasn't just the trailer that got folks talking. We also got a slew of new Barbie posters, showing the various cast members with the iconic Barbie logo and text around them.

What You Need

  • A phone or computer

  • Barbie Selfie Generator website

The posters do a great job of showing off Margot Robbie and crew — but what if you want to create your own Barbie poster? Twitter and Instagram have been filled with people putting photos of themselves on the now-iconic Barbie poster, and as it turns out, making a version with a picture of yourself is as simple as using a free Barbie poster generator (but sadly not quite as simple as it being its own native Barbie filter on Instagram).

Step 5: Now, it's time to customize your Barbie poster selfie! Tap on the arrow icon and use the buttons below to adjust the position and size of your selfie.

Step 6: Tap the pencil icon to choose the Barbie or Ken text. Below the section that says This Barbie is, you can replace the default text with anything else you want to type.

Step 7: Tap the paint palette icon to choose a color for your Barbie selfie poster.

Step 8: Tap the pink Continue button once you're done.

Step 9: On the next page, you can save your Barbie poster selfie to your device. If you're on your phone, tap and hold the poster to save it. If you're on a computer, right-click to save. Alternatively, scroll down and tap the pink Download button.

And that's it! Just like that, you've made your very own Barbie selfie — just like you see in the movie. With your Barbie selfie created, you can now go forth and share it on Twitter, Instagram, or whatever social media site your heart desires. Have fun!

Boring Report is an AI app that revolutionized how I read the news
Boring report app on iPhone

I recently wrote about an app called Shortwave and its AI summarizer feature, which turns long, bland emails into short summaries with most of the core details intact. I've gotten used to that convenience to such an extent that I now want a summarized version of all the content that I read online, especially verbose news stories. By sheer luck, I came across the listing of a new app called Boring Report.

The app promises to “remove sensationalism” from news and relies on an AI capable of “generating humanlike text” to make them boring to read. Of course, these AI-generated summarized articles are not a substitute for the real stories that require considerable human effort, but if you are running short on time, but want to get a brief overview of everything that’s happened in the past 24 hours across different fields, Boring Report is the app that deserves room on your phone.

Unlike blocking on social media sites like Twitter, WhatsApp doesn't let you know if you've been blocked, leaving you somewhat in the dark.
