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?

We’ve been enjoying Amin’s sponsored series of guessing game videos on Instagram. Click the ‘play’ icons in the IGTV videos below to watch and guess for each object:
