Fish endlessly eat fish in this 3D zoetrope by 4-Mation, a UK-based modular kit from toymaker Kevin Holmes. The piece was printed on a Form 2 3D printer. The visual animation is achieved in person by using precisely timed strobes. (Learn more about this effect in Pixar’s Zoetrope and how animation works.) To capture the effect on video, the carousel rotation speed was set to complement the camera FPS.
And here’s the other model shown in the vid above: Jumping Frogs.
