Infinite Objects: GIPHY Valentines and Creator Tool Launch

I want to share a news about GIPHY, where Lulu worked two years ago for their international content! Today, Infinite Objects—the company making “video prints” that launched in October 2019—is announcing the launch of its Valentine’s Day collaboration with GIPHY as well as the public beta of the Infinite Objects Creator Tool, their on-demand video printing service that lets customers upload, customize and purchase a framed video of their favorite memories for the first time.

To celebrate Valentine’s Day, Infinite Objects and GIPHY have joined forces to make purchasing and gifting a GIF possible for the first time. Part of GIPHY’s mission is to push the boundaries of what communicative content looks like, which aligns with IO’s pursuit of exploring novel ways video can be gifted, collected, and experienced. Now users across the globe can finally own and hold their favorite GIPHY content.

At GIPHY, we’ve always dreamed of bringing GIFs into the physical world so they could be shared IRL. Infinite Objects makes this dream a reality. They are making the real world more animated and we couldn’t be more thankful for that.

 Alex Chung, Founder, GIPHY

 

In addition to the GIPHY offering, Infinite Objects is also launching a public beta of their on-demand video printing service. Whether it be a moving moment from your wedding day, your baby’s first steps, an incredible overseas adventure with your best friends, or quality time with your precious pup, Infinite Objects commemorates your video content in the same permanent way as a framed photograph.

Today, video is the content we value the most – be it on Instagram, YouTube, film, or television. Yet moving images are treated differently than printed media. Video has been trapped inside our phones, laptops, and TVs – until now. Being able to forever memorialize a personal video is long overdue, so we’re excited to provide the opportunity to turn a beautiful moving moment into physical form. It’s perfect for all of life’s occasions; birthdays, vacations, graduations, and every holiday, including Valentine’s Day!

 Joe Saavedra, Founder and CEO, Infinite Objects

The beta will be available for a short time—while supplies last—and will offer users the chance to print their videos in both a large (8.4 x 5.7 x 0.9”) and small (6.35 x 4.45 x 0.9”) object. The IO Creator Tool will allow for edits such as speed, zoom, rotation, loop, and color filters and is accessible via web on mobile and desktop at create.infiniteobjects.com beginning on January 30th.

MIGHTY SELF LAUNCHES NEW CBD-BASED NUTRACEUTICAL

This year, Mighty Self, a health and wellness company that creates science-backed products formulated to help people sustain and enhance mental and physical health by harnessing the power of cannabinoids is launching BALANCE, a nutraceutical product that is designed to support the human body’s natural inflammatory response as well as help calm nervous tension. BALANCE is formulated with full-spectrum whole plant hemp-based CBD extract in combination with complementary bioactive and apoptogenic herbs that assist in the body’s processes to boost mood, calm the mind, and relieve nervous tension. Made from specially selected domestic hemp, BALANCE is non-intoxicating and contains less than .03% THC (as mandated by the federal requirements of the 2018 Farm Bill).

Research for the product was based on studies that have found that the endocannabinoid system is made up of a network of receptor sites on cell membranes throughout the body. These cannabinoids behave as chemical activators that fit into those sites (CB1 & CB2). CB1 receptors are found predominately in the brain and central nervous system, and CB2 receptors in immune system cells and, to a lesser extent, in the brain.


Key ingredients in BALANCE include:
  • CBD—CBD is a non-psychoactive compound found in the female cannabis plant that increases the levels of a naturally occurring cannabinoid in the brain called anadamide, which helps to regulate serotonin and dopamine, the neurotransmitters that trigger emotions. Preliminary studies have shown CBD to support a healthy inflammatory response, promote a feeling of relaxation, and maintain nervous system function in the body.
  • Phenethylamine (PEA)—PEA is an organic compound that is found in foods like chocolate, beans and nuts that acts as a neurotransmitter in the body and has been shown to support focus and clarity, and promote a mood of wellbeing. Science has revealed that these results are due to the ability of PEA to reduce uptake and increase efflux of serotonin, dopamine and norepinephrine in the body.
  • Hordenine—Hordenine is an alkaloid that naturally occurs in many plant foods (particularly barley). It has been suggested that hordenine may promote energy and focus due to its adrenergic properties, which cause nerve cells to release the neurotransmitters epinephrine and norepinephrine.
  • DL-Phenylalanine (DLPA)—DLPA is a combination of D- and L- isomers of the amino acid phenylalanine. Phenylalanine can be converted into tyrosine, which is used to synthesize dopamine, epinephrine and norepinephrine, which can support mental alertness and focus when the body is under stressful conditions.
  • Ashwagandha—Ashwagandha is an ayurvedic herb that has been used as an adaptogen for restoring physical and mental energy, especially when under daily stress. The ingredient has been shown to balance cortisol levels by mimicking the inhibitory neurotransmitter GABA. It has also been studied for its immune-activating effect and nootropic potential.
  • Theobromine—Theobromine is a flavanol antioxidant compound found in the cacao bean which stimulates the nervous system with effects similar to caffeine. Studies have shown that the compound can increase mental function in older adults and has the ability to act on brain neurotransmitters to improve mood and increase energy.
  • Curcumin—Curcumin is a compound found in turmeric. It is one of the most extensively investigated compounds of natural origin with many studies validating its role in promoting a healthy inflammatory response, antioxidant activity, and cell protection. Neurological tissue is particularly susceptible to oxidative stress, and curcumin has been shown to inhibit expression of COX-2 enzymes in the body’s inflammatory process.

Mighty Self Balance is non-psychoactive, contains no artificial flavors, is sugar free and each bottle contains 25 capsules (suggested usage is one capsule per day). It is available at a retail price of $39.95 at mightycbd.co, where you can find more information about the brand.
About Mighty Self
