Instagram Launches One-Second Video Application
Instagram has released Boomerang, a standalone application for one second videos. “Boomerang ‘takes a burst of photos and stitches them together into a high-quality mini video that plays forward and backward,’ according to the blog post announcing the app, automatically saving the result to a user’s camera roll. The brief animations can also (of course) be shared to Instagram’s main app.” Videos are going to get shorter and shorter, until one day we’ll go full circle and have videos which don’t play at all. And we will call them photographs.
