The Library has just launched Stereogranimator, a site that lets users turn our historic collection of stereographs into animated images like the one above. Read all about it in the Times and then go play! It’s the latest way we’re using technology to bring our collections to the public, following our What’s on the Menu, Biblion iPad app and map warping projects.
Caturday will never be the same …
So cool! Also, per the Times: “Stereographs, produced by the millions between the 1850s and the 1930s, were a wildly popular form of entertainment, giving viewers a taste of the kind of richly rounded images now readily available on screens of all sizes.” So really, people have ALWAYS loved gifs!
Everyone saw this, right? It’s A M A Z I N G <3
Vintage gifs are cool but they are also making me feel weird and nauseous.
