Jim Le Fevre is a genius. This is incredible!!! A little tweak to the shutter speed on his camera and Le Fevre’s turntable transforms into a perfect Zoetrope (invention which uses the persistence of motion principle to create the illusion of motion). Enjoy.

“The zoetrope was invented in 1834 by William Horner and uses the persistence of motion principle to create the illusion of motion. It consists of a drum with an open top and is supported on a central axis. A sequence of hand-drawn pictures on strips of paper are placed around the inner bottom of the drum. Slots are cut equidistant from one another around the outer surface of the drum, just above where the picture strips were to be positioned. As the drum is spun, the viewer(s) can look through any slot on the wall of the device and see a rapid progression of images.” – Animation Wiki
