3D Marching zoetrope

A 19th-century optical toy consisting of a cylinder with a series of pictures on the inner surface that, when viewed through slits with the cylinder rotating, give an impression of continuous motion

I'll admit - I had to look that definition up.  I had seen this type of thing, usually in its standard form with either a flip book type animation or a spinning disk.  This one is quite interesting. 

Using a 3D printer and some electronics knowlege, [Tobias] turned the concept into a true 3D experience.

See video and be amazed at what people come up with in their spare time...
