Praxinoscope

SKU Code: REMZ55B

The setup consists of partial mirrors and a strip of pictures. A strip of pictures is inserted into a circular surface. Partial mirrors are placed in the middle of this surface. The number of pictures on the strip of pictures and the number of mirrors in the partial mirror set are equal. As the system rotates, the fast motion of the reflected pictures creates a moving image illusion. Cinema is based on this fundamental principle.
