Electric Objects

Kickstarter campaign for a device to bring art and the internet onto your walls - video embedded below:

A framed high-definition screen and integrated computer that hangs on your wall and brings art from the Internet into your home.

There’s more art on the Internet than in every gallery and museum on Earth.

But many of these beautiful objects are trapped. They’re trapped inside of devices like our phones, our tablets, our TVs, our laptops — devices designed for distraction, living between texts, tweets, football games and emails from work. 

So we wanted to make a new way to bring art from the Internet into your home.

Introducing EO1, a computer designed to bring the beauty of the Internet into your home.

A million GIFs isn’t cool. You know what’s cool? A billion GIFs.

It’s been a little over a year since we launched Giphy, and since then we’ve been blessed to be able to work with some of the best people, artists, and brands who have helped us grow to serve over 1 billion GIFs a month and growing.

All of this would not have been possible without the full support of our partner and friends at Betaworks.  Being backed by Betaworks, we’ve been extremely fortunate to be fully funded and focused on building this last year.  However, this spring we were introduced to some amazing people we knew we had to work with.

We are thrilled that Betaworks will be joined by Lerer Ventures, RRE Ventures, and CAA Ventures as new partners in a strategic round of investment that will help Giphy continue to grow and expand as the GIF platform for the internet.

We also are excited to announce today the world’s first GIF link shortener!

And stay tuned for some GIFtasticness that will blow your minds that we will be releasing in the next few weeks such as: GIF uploads for everyone, a suite of GIF creation tools, a new home page of all the best GIFs on the internet in real time, a new mobile optimized site, mp4 embeds of all our GIFs, and a ton of other GIFness.

Thank you so much for your support!  And please send us your feedback and your favorite GIFs!

(And thanks to Haydiroket (Mert Keskin) for the awesome Giphy GIF above!)
