The 'I See U' spy kit is a project developed by the Rebel Agency that allows amateur videographers capture unknown footage of their surrounding peers and turn it into animated GIFs. The kit contains all the gadgets needed to create the miniature films, making it incredibly easy for anyone to go undercover.

The kit includes a microphone, Raspberry Pi system and a touchscreen to track and translate conversations and video footage in real-time. The footage is converted into animated GIFs using the platform Giphy. The addition of animated GIF-making renders the activity of spying on one's peers much less intimidating and menacing.

Devices such as the 'I See U' kit merges popular social media services with videography to make it much more relevant for millennial consumers.
