Loop Findr is a tool that automatically finds loops in videos so you can turn them into seamless gifs.
Since their creation in 1987, animated GIFs have become one of the most popular means of expression on the Internet. They have evolved into their own artistic medium due to their ability to capture a particular feeling and the format’s portable nature. Loop Findr seeks to usher in a new era of seamless GIFs created from loops found in the videos the populate the Internet. Loop Findr is a tool that automatically finds these loops so users can turn them into GIFs that can then be shared all over the Web.

AN EMPTY BOX FULL OF POSSIBILITIES.
The Cubby lets you turn anything and everything into art. Yes even your underwear. Its stowaway lid and window make it the perfect place for your favourite things. Turn it into a box-frame and show off your collectibles or use it to just add storage space for your kid’s toys. Create a windowless cabinet for the bathroom or create shelf space for candles and small plants to spruce up a space. The possibilities are endless.
