A thaumatrope was a hugely popular toy in Victorian times, a kind of old-school stop motion trick, or an old-school show with only one channel. With the wonder of persistence of vision, a bird magically transported into a cage with just a twirl of a string.

I have a color version now! See http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QAGnpKz7zvY  Check out ohmprojects (dot) com to check out details about all my projects (and to buy!). Its a work in progress so bear with me.  My own propeller clock display. On board memory holds 128 frames. It can display a static message, show a running clock, and also run...

This site is a museum of classic home science projects. It is not so much meant to be "how to" or educational, but more of a celebration of early to mid 20th century home experimentation and pop science illustration.

Zoetrope: the physics and psychophysics of motion animation- still images flashed in rapid succession produces the illusion of motion through persistence of vision. The slits are crucial to creating the illusion by blacking out the visual stimulus for a short duration- without these pauses only a blur is perceived. When the image flash rate is above the flicker fusion frequency (approximately 16Hz) we perceive fluid motion- the basis for all movies and TV. ➡️ Follow the link in my profile to…
