Virtual representations of ourselves can influence the way we feel and behave. While this phenomenon has been explored heavily in the realms of virtual reality and gaming, little is known about the level of impact increasingly pervasive real-time camera filters can have on how people feel, think, and behave. The prevalence and popularity of these technologies have surged, coupled with greater usage of online communication tools. Motivated by a desire for self-improvement in an age of regular video-based online communication, we conducted a user study to investigate the potential for real-time camera filters to influence emotions, support embodiment illusions, and consequently impact cognitive performance by applying it to the domain of creative thinking.
