Where would the web be without GIFs? People would need to distract themselves from school, work and life in general with annoying things like useful information that might better us as people. Of course, GIFs can be more than just distractions, and graphic designer Jacob O’Neil recently created a series of GIFs that ditch cats and people falling off of things, replacing them instead with awesome animations that are as informative as they are sleek.

Via The Loop, O’Neil runs a site called Animagraffs that looks to explain the world around us with the aid of beautifully crafted animated graphics. O’Neil’s most recent focus is the speaker, which is a fascinating feat of science that we all take for granted.
