Wow. Animated GIFs are everywhere now… even on a vintage Apple II Plus!

Nathan Griffith put together an awesome bit of code that makes it possible to display animated GIFs on an Apple II+ with only 64K of RAM.

How does it work? Essentially, a Python script converts an animated GIF to a maximum resolution of 280 x 192, reduces its colors to a pallette of 4, and then outputs them to a floppy disk in a format an old Apple II+ can read.

Pretty awesome. Check out the videos below to see it in action:
