The Kid Should See This

How many parts? dina A. Amin’s gadget guessing game videos

Cairo-based tinkerer and stop-motion filmmaker dina A. Amin created this short animation featuring four gadgets that she took apart piece by piece: A walkman, a phone, a hairdryer, and a camera. See them up close before they scatter into neatly arranged parts. It’s an extension of her Tinker Friday stop-motion animations.

Tiny screws, wires, gears, levers, springs, circuit boards, buttons and bits. What parts do you see and how many of them are there?
