4-Mation is a modular 3D Zoetrope kit that will be available in 3 models.
It’s powered by 24 3Watt RGB LED strobes, precision timed by a microcontroller linked to an encoder motor.
RPM(Strobe-rate), brightness, colour are all controlled from a phone app.
The Android app (4-Mation) is already in the play store, iPhone app is in progress.
Assemble the kit in about 1/2 hour then download and print one of our free animations – or design your own.
Animations can be swapped in a minute.
The 3 models are :
- electronics only, everything except the frame – (download the profiles for the frame and cut your own)
- laser cut plywood frame
- machined walnut frame (pictured above and in videos on videos page)
The plywood and walnut versions will also be available to order with an included animation, printed on our Form2, the same printer used for the animations in the videos.
