Exactly 6 months after sharing their viral prototype AR Copy Paste prototype, French developers Cyril Diagne and Jonathan Blanchet have just released a public beta of ClipDrop.
Clipdropuses Augmented Reality and Artificial Intelligence to copy and paste physical objects into digital documents. It automatically removes the background from copied visuals allowing users to paste the object as it is into programs such as Photoshop, PowerPoint, Google Docs, Canva, Figma, and Pitch.
It’s a wonderful tool that teachers can use for teaching and creating digital content. Also, students can use it to incorporate visuals taken from the real world into their assignments.
The beta version has already gathered 100k active users in less than one week after its release. People across industries have expressed, through thousands of messages and reviews on social media, how this tool was going to help them save hours of work.
How Does ClipDrop Work?
On the desktop, ClipDrop works as a screen capture tool, allowing users to capture whatever that is displayed on their screens.
With the mobile app, users can instantly paste visuals taken with their phone’s camera into their computers. The procedure is easy: They point the camera at an object, press the shutter, and ClipDrop will automatically clip it for them. When the desktop is connected to the mobile app, they can simply bring their phone close to the computer and wait for the wireless transfer to complete.
1. Capture directly from your desktop and just drag & drop to any other app.
2. Incredibly accurate background removal: It uses state of the art vision AI to provide the best analysis & cut-out technology, no matter what you’re capturing.
3. Integrates with your workflow: Drag & drop images directly to any other app or website.

WhatsApp is a wildly popular free messaging service that boasts more than 2 billion users worldwide. And while many people use it via their phones, it can also be used on a desktop or laptop. If you know you’re going to be away from your phone for a bit and need to send a quick message, or if you just want to be able to keep in touch with your friends or family while you work, using WhatsApp Web on your computer can be a great option.
For Android: Tap on the teal OK button that appears at the bottom of the screen. You may be asked to allow WhatsApp to have access to your phone’s camera: Tap on Continue — you may need to answer other permissions questions to grant access. Your phone’s screen should now look like a QR code scanner.
For iOS: Tap on the Scan QR code option, and the app will ask for permission to access your camera. Accept, and the screen should show a QR code scanner for the next step.
After this step, your app will open a screen with a camera window.
Step 3: Point the camera window at your computer screen, scan the QR code and your WhatsApp account and contacts will appear in the WhatsApp Web screen on your computer.
