selfie eyes correction

Change eyes in image to seemingly correctly look at camera

People, before snapping a group selfie, look at the picture on the phone. But the camera is usually located elsewhere up, down, or to the sides.

wibni software or hardware could change that, so even though we are looking the wrong way, in the final image it will show correctly? Its achievable in software, and probably not even that hard to do.

Another way to go about it is to make a small portion of the screen become transparent with the camera in back of it somewhere towards the area where your eyes usually appear in the selfie. In that case, it would be good if half a second before taking the pic, an eye would show on the screen with the camera located inside the pupil. The eye would be shown blinking (closing eyelids and rapidly opening them), or looking away and then back to the center, to get full attention.

Last but not least (actually, maybe it is least), the camera could stay in its current location, but the screen could go blank and a "blinking eye" would be shown around the camera. This "eyelid" could be mechanical with a drawing around the camera.

Which one do you like best, and when are you making it?

       Apple previewed something much like this for Facetime but I don't think the feature made it into the release version of iOS 13. (link)

       I look above the camera and it looks great in photos.

       Point the camera away from you; they'll look even better.
