Here at the Daily Dot, we swap GIF images with each other every morning. Now we’re looping you in. In the Morning GIF, we feature a popular—or just plain cool—GIF we found on Reddit, Canvas, or elsewhere on the Internet.

Just when you thought artists, museums, and movie producers had exhausted all the creative possibilities of the GIF, a designer named Jiho Jang takes the 25-year-old image format to the next level.


Jang is the creator of GIFTY, a cute camera “with a built-in Zero Ink printer that captures and prints animated GIFs as little flip books,” laughingsquid reported. In other words, GIFTY is the child of a Polaroid camera and iPhone app GIFshop. 

GIFTY is currently just a concept, but if the 116,000 views on its promotional video are any indication, there’s plenty of interest out there to make it a reality.
