Zoetrope

I’m back from vacation and refreshed.

Today’s word is a 19th-century toy consisting of a cylinder with a series of pictures of an object in motion on the inside.  The cylinder is lined with slits and spun so that when you peak through, the images form a stop motion video.  Here is a diagram of a zoetrope.  Here is a D.J. mix featuring some zoetrope action.
