Specifically, I made a modular zoetrope with my laser cutter. It works okay! I need to think harder about the optics of my designs to find stuff that will animate well in this context, but the principle seems really really sound and I'm happy with it as a start.
@pagrus squares are just sort of aesthetically where my heads at right now. Pong loop is a good idea!
@pagrus heh, no, i got you
@clew Propulsion's an interesting question! I cut mine knowing I could fit it to my vinyl turntable, so that was easy, but I also tested just hand spinning it on a pencil and that worked pretty well.
It'd be nice to figure out a little mechanical turntable assembly that could be built from minimal parts and used to hand crank a zoetrope, though. Not my wheelhouse but I imagine there's some good solutions out there.
