This PHHHOTO App Turns Your Pictures Into GIFs

Diplo Gif

A new iPhone app called PHHHOTO (created by a company called, not surprisingly, HYPERHYPER) turns your photos into instant GIFs. As you can see, even Diplo is into using it for selfies. When you take a photo through the app, it takes multiple pictures in a row and instantaneously forms a GIF from your creation. I tried it with a picture of yours truly, and it was super cool, but I can’t figure out how to save the thing into my phone’s camera roll or if that’s even possible. The GIF also moves really fast and gives me a little bit of a headache. It seems like the idea is to create your own social network within the app instead of sharing the picture elsewhere — maybe PHHHOTO will become the Instagram of GIFs? As the company oh-so-poetically says, “In the world of PHHHOTO, waves crash, ice cream melts and suns rise — forever.” Well, that’s one way to look at it. [PHHHOTO]

Little Girl Learns Her Baby Brother Can’t Stay Small Forever

Sister and Brother
Growing Up Is A Trap!

Sadie just came to the harsh realization that her little brother won’t stay a smiley baby forever. She’s adorable, yes, but crying hysterically about getting older hits a little too close to home for those of us in the grownup world! Hold off on your existential crisis, Sadie, it’ll hit you hard enough in about 30 more years. [via Buzzfeed]

Watch This A Cappella Medley Of Shakira Songs By Oxford Students

Oxford A Cappella Choir
Their Hips Don't Lie

Out Of The Blue, an insanely talented student a cappella group from Oxford University, busted out a medley of Shakira tunes in a charity performance. Each download of the song raises money for Helen and Douglas House, an Oxford children’s hospice. These choir boys are cute enough as is, but when they break out their hip-heavy dance moves, they’re even better! Even Shakira herself loved the performance, and told them so on Twitter. Watch them harmonize beautifully to “Hips Don’t Lie,” “Whenever, Wherever,” and “Waka Waka (This Time For Africa).” [Huffington Post]

Non-Gendered Fashion Is Becoming More Accessible Than Ever

Nongendered Fashion
The Right To Be Handsome

Gender non-conforming clothing is becoming more accessible as designers realize that there’s an untapped market for LGBT shoppers. While it’s not too romantic that capitalism is the driving force behind the expansion, it’s very cool to see more well-fitting, traditionally male suits available for women. The fashion industry may be innovative, but it’s often slow to be inclusive, and in this clip, PBS shares what pushed the industry to create more gender-neutral clothes. [ColorLines]
