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.

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.

In recent years, natural language processing technology and language translation technology have advanced greatly. The trouble is, language translation software typically comes in the form of apps.
