Keep the bugs away! This Zoetrope snaps up and wiggles its six tentacles. Spin him under the strobe light from your phones LED flash to animate!
-caution, printed product is very detailed and delicate. You may need to carefully adjust figures before first use. All products have been prototyped and adjusted with shapeways prior to sale.
-place handle end caps into center spindle on your Zoetrope
-download Free strobe app for Iphone or Android. For IOS I recommend iLights Flashlight as it has a fast strobe setting but feel free to experiment and share your best app. Link to App I dont have acess to an Android Phone but there are lots of options too.
-Set strobe to fastest setting keeping the light away from your eyes.
-spin Zoetrope and set your sights on a single point in the circle
-for best results view in a semi dark environment and keep at about arms length.
-speed and apparent animation direction will depend on spin and strobe speed. The more constant both are the better. The videos were made with a record player.
-for more fun, shine led onto a wall for over-sized animated shadow puppets!
