A nar file is behind this cute feature in Lumia 950

I saw this effect for the first time in Lumia 950. I am sure it is in the higher version but also more recent Windows smart phones. You might have also found it in the pictures you might have recently captured and saved to your Camera Roll. Perhaps you might not have associated these (.nar files) with the cute effect you  observed. You (in the Photo tile) click on one of these images and it opens up and comes to life briefly (Live Images)  before settling to a still that you have been used to all along. These are live pictures.

If you look at the properties of these picture you will see the .nar extension. NAR extension refers to Nikon Capture Advanced Raw file.

If you try to attach it with a message you will get two options, an image or a video. I sent it out to my wife to her iPhone 6S and she got a video. The video effect on iPhone 6S is Ok but not like it is on Windows 10 Phone Lumia 950. You have got to see it to know how it looks. This is developing area  of  rich capture.
