General Electric is currently running a campaign (by BBDO) titled “brilliant machines,” which celebrates the robots it helps make.But did you know that GE is quietly mastering the world of memes and photoblogs, too?

It has a handsome Tumblr account on which it promotes a huge cache of Instagram beauty shots of its products. If you like engines, trains and planes — this is the blog for you.

Best of all, GE has a lot of GIFs you can share, many of them in the eerie “cinemagraph” style we told you about back in September.

Here’s a gallery of GE GIFS, many of them shot by Adam Senatori. Give them a few moments to load.
