Cinemagram Turns iPhone Photos Into Animated Gifs In Seconds Remember when the iPhone app GLMPS launched last summer, seemingly heralding the start of a new image format that blended static photos and video? No? That’s OK. Today, there’s a new twist on the idea of reinventing the mobile photo, this time by turning static photos into animated ones.

Data Distribution Service (DDS) Imagine a world where cars are able to navigate safely to their destinations and find parking without a driver; where patient monitoring systems are smartly integrated to provide error-free alerts and doctors are able to keep track of homebound patients’ health. This world is no longer a vision of some distant future or a science fiction movie. Every day more and more devices are becoming connected allowing smart machines and systems to perform functions that were not possible before. This convergence of machine and intelligent data is the Industrial Internet (alternatively known as the Internet of Things or machine-to-machine/M2M communications). OMG’s Data Distribution Service (DDS) standard is a protocol for the Industrial Internet.
