Introducing Otto: A Raspberry Pi-Powered GIF Camera

If you’ve ever been on the internet, you more than likely have came across a GIF. There are a few options out there where you can create your own custom ones, and Otto has stepped in as another option. Otto is a hybrid of sorts as it’s part still camera and part video camera, giving the capabilities of creating your very own GIF. The camera is powered by a small Raspberry Pi computer with an accompanying app that lets you create all the GIFs you want. Otto not only makes GIFs, but is also capable of creating time lapse videos. Since the Raspberry Pi computer is installed in the camera, the possibilities are almost limitless as to what you can create with this tiny camera. As of right now, there’s a Kickstarter campaign going on for Otto if you want to support it..
