Let's see what you have got! Some time ago, a really dear friend of mine in this community asked me to share my animated gif collection... Duh! I don't have much, I replied... in fact, internet it's my hard drive... But then I was thinking, and (for the Diablo III fans) even if this hurts me a lot, I've kept thinking... and I've thought... what about our own animated gif repository, where each member may come in, take what he wants, and post his own animated gif's? So, just like the thread Motivational Posters thread, let's start our own repository where all the funny, and less funny but interesting, or just lame or... you choose (but don't post obscenities as it's against our rules) will be posted and treasured forever and ever and ever and ever and ever... this is a borderline to me... toward obscenities... ...have I already said that I love cats? and the little thing that is flying among my signature... it's a cat, not a bear! now it's cuddling... but may become like those...
Saran999 posted a topic in Tech NewsHave you always wanted to turn an Internet video or animated GIF into a lenticular print? There's a Kickstarter project for that. Unhappy leaving animated GIFs relegated to the Internet, a duo from Brooklyn, N.Y., wants to turn them into coaster-sized cards that play when you angle them back and forth. You might have seen something similar on souvenir postcards or movie posters, but designers Rachel Binx and Sha Hwang who launched a new Kickstarter project called Gifpop!, see the 70-some-odd-year-old lenticular film technology as a business opportunity. The project, which has already raised more than twice its minimum goal of $5,000, aims to turn GIFs as well as videos from Vine and Instagram into printed cards that can play back "around" 10 frames of any animation. Binx and Hwang say they're planning to use the money not just to set up the production of said products, but also a site that will let users upload that content and get it printed out to different sizes of cards. Part of that plan also involves offering up a place for GIF artists to hawk their wares on the Gifpop site, and the pair is giving some early backers copies of some of those designs. the pair says. This isn't the first such project to turn GIFs into physical keepsakes. Back in 2007, Motionbox (which was bought up by HP's Snapfish and later shut down) turned user videos into flipbooks for $8.99. An unrelated DIY version of that idea remains through GIFprint, which turns animated GIFs into printable PDFs that can be converted (by hand) into flipbooks. There was also the 2011 "Physical GIF" Kickstarter project that aimed to do the same thing using laser-cut zoetropes. And not to be outdone, there's also the GIF-TY, a concept product that would not only capture 1 to 5 second video clips, but also turn them into a paper flipbook. Of course none of those held the potential to double as a coaster, an unadvertised (and likely unadvised) feature of this particular project. Here's the pitch video: http://vimeo.com/77618304
