Rayton Solar’s silicon wafers

 

A CGI GIF by Rayton Solar, a solar panel manufacturer. They use laser technology to thinly slice silicon blocks with minimal wastage. As Rayton puts it “The standard industry manufacturing process wastes half the raw silicon block due to the saw blade that is used to cut silicon. Rayton Solar’s manufacturing technology is a zero waste process that represents a revolutionary new step for the solar industry.”

ITV Schools ident on Channel 4 – 1987

 

Our second ever self-made GIF by Gifville.

This features the CGI ident used by the ITV Schools educational programming initiative on Channel 4 in the UK. This was aired on the 14th September 1987, ITV Schools’ first day of broadcast.

I chose this to be ‘gifised’ for three reasons: the beauty of the graphics, the fact that this CGI was revolutionary for its time, and that in 1992, I would often see this graphic before my favourite morning kids’ shows when I was a boy of 7-8 years. Lovely memories.
