We’re thrilled to launch The Lytro-izer, which we think is probably the greatest breakthrough in holiday technology since the invention of the artificial Christmas tree.
For the next three days, from December 4th to December 6th, we’re giving you a once in a lifetime chance to be Lytro-ized. Simply send the Lytro-izer one of your favorite photos via Twitter with the hashtag #LytroMe. Make it good – funny, dramatic, or just plain weird – and if your photo is deemed worthy of Lytro-ization, a holiday miracle will begin. Armed only with the revolutionary technology of the Lytro camera and a few handfuls of clay, the Lytro-izer will transform your photo into a living picture claymation creation and tweet it back to you for you to share and show off.
To accomplish this feat, we’re teaming up with the artists at Screen Novelties. These award-winning stop motion animators have worked on many projects, from MTV’s Celebrity Deathmatch to the recently aired It’s a SpongeBob Christmas holiday special to Robot Chicken. Visit lytro.me to learn more about The Lytro-izer and submit a photo. You might just end up with the makings of a fun and unique digital holiday card that will be talked about by your friends and family all season long. Consider it our gift to you. We wish you a very happy holiday.
