AI image generation has been let loose and it seems there's no going back. With DALL-E 2 now open to all, another player has entered the fray not wanting to lose out – and it's none other than Facebook's parent company Meta. And while DALL-E 2 currently works its magic only with static images, Meta's revealed that it's working on a similar tool for video.

Like with AI image generators such as DALL-E 2, users will be able to type in a descriptive text prompt, and the tool will generate four output options. Named Make-A-Video (give them a break, they were too busy with the tech to work on names) isn't yet public, but Meta AI has been doing requests on Twitter. The results are as creepy as they are astonishing. If you need to catch up on how AI image generation works, see how to use DALL-E 2. We've also seen the best AI art generators compared.
