Suspend these optical disks in front of a well-lit
background, and as they rotate, the images will spring to life.
Available in 3.5" and 5.5" diameter
CineSpinner animated suncatchers come to life and animate continuously as
they gently rotate in a window.
CineSpinners, Kineticards, and Scanimation� rulers, are not holograms, nor
are they lenticular in nature. These elegant little movie machines rival the
classic motion picture toys of a century ago.
They are based on a recently patented application of ancient optical
principles that combines parallax perception with moire-line type patterns to
create the illusion of fluid motion. When the striped decoder layer is moved in
one direction across the face of the image layer (either by hand or by a
rotating motion), a series of sequential, still pictures are revealed one by one
to the eye. Your brain links this succession of images together, creating the
illusion of movement.
