A few days ago, Grafitti artist INSA made a massive animated painting in Rio de Janeiro. Over four days he painted an area of 154,774 square feet (14,379 square meters) with the help of 20 assistants. The painting states were captured by a satellite to create this GIF, the biggest ever.
Check out this animated GIF. It's the toughest moment of the space shuttle Endeavour's drive across Los Angeles, en route to its permanent retirement place, at the Science Center.For context, here's a wider angle:

When Apple pimps the iPhone as this magical tool, my cynical self can't help but laugh. Not anymore. With GIF Shop, you can make GIFs with an iPhone app. You can make GIFs with an iPhone app. You can make GIFS with an iPhone app. Whoa.
