Comedian Damon Wayans Launches App, Discusses Hollywood's Future

Comedian Damon Wayans got the attention of techies last week at The Samsung Developer Conference in San Francisco to discuss his new app, Flick Dat, and how technology is changing the Hollywood game.

He came up with the idea for app after leaving a tech conference and not being able to make heads or tails of the 50 or so business cards he received. Wouldn't it be cool to just "flick" that card to someone digitally, he thought.

"I added the ability to put video on your [business] card and also take a picture of whatever you want and make that your background. Pretty sexy."

Watch Wayans demonstrate the app:

He also discussed his new app, Diddeo, a platform for creating professional-looking music videos on a smart phone. Wayans calls it a pocket studio "and soon-to-be community."
