It can seem like the tech exists only to create, via text-to-image prompts, scenes from your nightmares. But here's an application that TikTokers are actually finding a use for.

And with several million views already, it's clear the feature is a hit on TikTok. (Wondering what all the AI fuss is about? Check out the weirdest art created with AI.)
