Infinite Objects and GIPHY are initially introducing limited number of physical GIFs based on different themes. These GIFs are carefully curated pieces of art. The company aims to make this an art collectible, instead of a gadget. “You are not buying a gadget; you are collecting a video,” the company states on its FAQ page. This is why the GIF frames are made pretty pricey.The frames also do not feature any battery, buttons etc. The company is making limited number of GIF Frames for specific themes and some of them are already sold out! These can be ordered from the Infinite Object Website.

“At GIPHY, we’ve always dreamed of bringing GIFs into the physical world so they could be shared IRL (in real life). Infinite Objects makes this dream a reality. They are making the real world more animated and we couldn’t be more thankful for that,” says Alex Chung, the founder of GIPHY.

On 30th January, Infinite Objects also announced that they are introducing their on-demand video printing services, in beta, through the IO Creator Tool. This option will allow people to get their own perfect videos printed out like a framed photographs. Infinite Objects offers two types of prints – these can be large (8.4 x 5.7 x 0.9″) and/or small (6.35 x 4.45 x 0.9″) sized. The IO creator tool allows users to edit their edits by making changes in attributes like speed, zoom, rotation, loop, and color filters etc. This will, then, cost them $79 and 59$ for large and small sized frames respectively. The beta option won’t be available for long so, order yours here before they close it up.

The idea was introduced considering videos as the most valuable form of entertainment and so, GIPHY and Infinite Objects devised this method to make them physical. “Today, video is the content we value the most – be it on Instagram, YouTube, film, or television. Yet moving images are treated differently than printed media. Video has been trapped inside our phones, laptops, and TVs – until now,” said Joseph Saavedra, Founder and CEO of Infinite Objects. “Being able to forever memorialize a personal video is long overdue, so we’re excited to provide the opportunity to turn a beautiful moving moment into physical form. It’s perfect for all of life’s occasions; birthdays, vacations, graduations, and every holiday, including Valentine’s Day!”
