There's even a dancing baby! It's based on a mobile installation for hire that prompts your guests to turn themselves into loops that they can then drag around on a virtual stage.
Even though it dates from 2012, I found it weirdly addictive today, and that was before my kid got out of bed and started playing with it, and I had to wrestle the computer away from her. Here's the party I made.
Welcome to GIF DANCE PARTY INSTALLATION. Created with lots of love/code by Fuzzy Wobble, Wes, Joe, and Matt in an effort to bring an experiential party installation that goes far beyond the familiar photo/gif booth. We have ventured into a world of interactive / looped / reversed / cloned / collaborative / pelvic-thrusting / dancing / comical / chaos -- creating a memorable party experience for everyone. This project was released recently, in May 2015, and stems from the viral website http://gifdanceparty.giphy.com/ created by Fuzzy Wobble back in 2012.

It was quite a challenge to create it, and huge thanks to all the folks who supported me… including, of course, the Boing Boing crew. I hope you consider buying or renting it. And in case you want […]
All the filters in the world won’t save your smartphone pics from a shaky hand. To really step up your mobile photography game, you’ll need some kind of mount to hold it steady. You could buy a smartphone attachment for a conventional camera tripod, but who wants to carry that kind of gear everywhere they […]
The forced transition from analog to digital TV signals was probably met with relative indifference from people with Netflix subscriptions and the “I don’t even own a TV” snoots. But anyone living in the vast swaths of the country that don’t have guaranteed high-speed internet, broadcast TV is a perfectly valid (and 100% free) way […]
When Apple revealed the new MacBook in 2016, one of the biggest issues raised with the notebook’s new design (aside from ire over the slew of new adapters you’d inevitably have to buy) was the removal of one of its most beloved proprietary features, the magnetic charging cable. Thankfully, third-party peripheral makers have taken up […]
