Someone Made a Portable Keanu Gif Player and I Need it Now

By Victoria Song on at

Keanu Reeves has always been great. That said, we are truly living in the golden age of the Keanu Renaissance. So much so that someone has created a DIY, portable Keanu gif player, because why resign yourself to merely imagining his glory, when you can watch multiple ten-second clips of it?

The device was originally created by John Park, who uploaded a video of the gif player in action to YouTube. Park is a maker for Adafruit Industries, an open-source hardware company that designs and sells its own DIY electronics kits and components. The Keanu gif player was made using an Adafruit PyGamer and an SD card. As you can see in the video, it autoplays each gif for 10 seconds and you can use the L/R thumbstick to go back and forth.

If you’ve got some spare cash lying around and coding gumption, Park also linked to a tutorial so you can make your own Keanu gif player. Well, it doesn’t have to be Keanu. Theoretically, you could make it play any range of gifs featuring whoever or whatever you want. But they wouldn’t be as great as these Keanu gifs. I mean, here:

We need this in our lives, pronto. [Boing Boing]
