This great project by Becky Stern puts a clever animated gif-making apparatus into a vintage camera housing, and uploads the results to a Tumblr page. This was a hilarious hit at Maker Faire New York this year. [Maker Share]

The code is based on Lara’s free¬†Instructables Raspberry Pi Class, which contains valuable background info if you’re new to electronics, programming, or the Pi. If you have some Pi experience, you may appreciate the¬†Pi Tumblr GIF Photobooth Instructable, which is a more concise overview of the class content. The same code can be used to run a photo booth at your next party! I chose to take my camera mobile with a big battery pack to capture GIFs at Maker Faire NY this year.
