MIT Media Lab students Travis Rich and Kevin Hu have created an awesome GIF search site. GIFGIF lets you search for the perfect GIF based on emotion. When a visitor comes to the site they are immediately presented with an emotion and two random GIFs. The viewer can then select which GIF displays the emotion more accurately or if “neither,” allowing GIFGIF to categorize them.
You can also search a specific rage of emotion and they’ll give you a shorter list based on your criteria. They’re still looking to enhance the site, according to the creators:
“We’d love to find some data measurements that show this variation quantitatively,” they told BuzzFeed. “We would also like to answer questions like, how are angry GIFs different from sad GIFs? Why are some GIFs ambiguous while others are clear?”
The site is clean, simple, and mathematical. Of course they’re still working out the bugs and there are currently only 1,024 GIFs, but it seems to be one of the best GIF search sites I’ve run across lately.
Use it. Love it. Bookmark it! Yay!!!
