Going home to visit your parents comes with some hesitance, especially when they make you watch those old home videos again.

But now you can make those old videos much more exciting, thanks to the new technology of Flipclips.

The creators of have brought us a new way to preserve our videos using a design from the past.

Remember in elementary school when kids used to draw stick figures in numerous poses and then make a book that, as you flipped the pages, made the object or person they drew seem like it was moving?

Instead of stick figures, you can take that video of your friend who got drunk and decided it would be a good idea to skateboard off the roof, and turn it into a flipbook.

This creative memoir starts at $5. You can even personalize the book cover.

Currently, the Web site only accepts videos 25 megabytes or less. But it suggests ways to reduce your video's byte size, including taking out audio and reducing its length.

So turn those home videos into something creative that you can cherish forever - that is, until someone makes a flipbook of that time you went streaking.
