Meet OTTO, the only camera that makes animated GIFs. This customizable, and very hackable, camera is powered by Raspberry Pi, which means the possibilities for what you can do with it are only limited by your imagination and programming knowledge, or aftermarket parts available. Here’s how it works out of the box. Link OTTO to your smartphone, launch the app and select a mode. Pop up the crank on OTTO, crank it and then rewind. Check your phone for the finished product because OTTO automatically syncs over wifi with the app. Share your creation. You can also pick up a FlashyFlash with the Kickstarter project, which is their Arduino-powered, shoe-mountable flash. OTTO is like a Lego Technic set you can use to record moments. You can follow the instructions. Or you can throw them out and make it what you want.

 You can’t have a fall evening without a fire. And you can’t have a fire without a Cowboy Cauldron. They’re built from solid plate steel, meaning they’ll last a lifetime or two and they come in four different sizes with elevated basins that can be adjusted to any height. We’re going with The Urbaan Cowboy® because it’s perfect for entertaining at home.  With a 30″ diameter basin, it is more than large enough to have a nice fire, but still small enough to pack into a pickup truck and take it with you.  Can you imagine the envy when we bust this puppy out at a tailgate or the beach? We haven’t seen a more handsome fire. You?  Best of all, Cool Material readers get an exclusive deal.
