Gucci recently went live with a series of banner ads with “Pin It” calls to action. You can save the branded glamour shots to one of your boards on Pinterest (and from there link to Gucci’s e-commerce site).
With the engagement challenge that banners pose, who knows, this could be a clever approach.

Here’s some awesome animated street art from UK artist INSA.
These start out as street art paintings, then the artist photographs them at various stages and compiles them into a GIF so that when viewed online they become a moving image! For the full experience, check them out here.

This project illuminates the flow of invisible wifi networks. A wifi measuring rod lights up depending on the strength of wifi signals, and long-exposure photographs capture the light’s as the rod moves through space.

The Lytro camera makes taking quick snapshots quick again. When you click to take a photo, the camera captures all the light information it can and provides you with a digital file you can edit later.
Born out of founder Ren Ng’s years of research and PhD thesis, this development in digital photography has the potential to transform still shots into more interactive, varied pictures as the user can edit the photo to switch between different points of focus, adjust the light levels, etc.
Essentially, the technology lets you take your photos more quickly, and then play with them for longer. What sounds better than that?

Inspired by a viral video, this iPhone 4 app prompts you to take a picture of yourself everyday. It also includes a time lapse function so that after you’ve taken a number of photos you can watch a speedy photostream of your face with your daily surroundings blurring behind it.
This app excels in its simplicity and easy user experience — little things like using the iPhone 4′s camera, alarm, and even a grid that helps you line up your face on the screen.
The YouTube video that inspired the app:

These already-cool photographs — captured at night with long-exposure film and a laptop playing an animation — become infinitely cooler once you know the haunting story behind them. (Conceived by GSP’s Croix Gagnon)

There’s something reminiscent of the moving photographs from Harry Potter in these beautiful and inspiring animated gifs by photographer Jamie Beck.
Great idea for digital print.

More artists are using XBox Kinect hacks to create stunning art based around people.
Photographer Audrey Penven captured the patterns of infrared light produced by the Kinect and the results are beautiful.
