Design concept for a camera that can print out a series of small prints to create a flipbook - video embedded below:
Via Yanko Design:
This unique camera allows you to print out short flipbook animations, so that you can physically keep the memories of precious moments alive in a fun way. GIF-TY’s Animations can be physically edited, and clipped on a separately designed module. Nametags can be attached to those clips just like old videotapes.
Technologically: GIF-TY is a combination of a burst-shot camera, and a ‘Zero-Ink’ Printer.

Our Series on APPRECIATING ART
In this series, we seek to help young art collectors understand the art world, and the mystery that shrouds it.

Trichoptere by Hubert Duprat
This is the incredible result come from a collaboration between a Caddis fly larvae and an artist. The Caddis flies live near water and produce larvae that protect their developing bodies by manufacturing cases, spun from silk and found objects such as grains of sand and pebbles. However, the larvae are remarkably adaptable: if other suitable materials are introduced into their environment, they will often incorporate those as well.
In this piece Duprat has collected the larvae and relocated them into a tank filled with jewels, gold and precious stones. The larvae then begin to build their cases using the available objects, creating beautifully intricate peaces of jewelry.
“The production of the artifact within nature herself poses a problem—even more so when an aesthetic aspect is involved. Whether the insect is a craftsperson or whether, more generally, nature is a creator of forms, the consideration, within nature, of an aesthetic dimension is the stumbling block of science.”
