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.
The Lytro camera is all about sharing moments in living pictures. So, as the year comes to a close, we thought we’d take a look back at some of the year’s top internet memes and moments in pop culture – only this time, we wanted to experience them as living pictures.
How to do that, you ask? We put our inventive brains to work to create The Lytro–izer. A time machine of sorts, The Lytro–izer is a breakthrough holiday technology. Armed only with the revolutionary technology of the Lytro camera and a few handfuls of clay, The Lytro–izer has brought these people and moments back to life. There’s Gangnam Style, Texts from Hillary, the famous (read: cute) Mars Landing Mohawk Guy, Obama’s victory for another term, Felix Baumgartner’s breathtaking space jump, and everybody’s favorite literary series, Fifty Shades of Grey. Now you get to experience them in a whole new way.
What’s even better? The Lytro-izer hasn’t finished its work. For the next three days, you can challenge The Lytro-izer to convert your most creative photos into living pictures. Visit lytro.me to get started and make your own mark on 2012 while there’s still time.
