A new spin on an old idea Before film, the Victorians had Zoetropes; the original GIFs. ​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​3D Zoetropes update the concept for the age of 3D printing. 4-Mation is an interactive 3D Zoetrope with uniquely smooth animations, available in a range of models from the ready-for-display Exhibits, to DIY kits.

Let there be LIGHT! 4-Mation is powered by 216 watts of LED brightness. Brighter is better since the strobes are just 1/2 a millisecond, but with its powerful LEDs positioned at 4 points above the carousel, the animations are clear without the need for a darkened room.

Control the Magic! 4-Mation is the worlds first Interactive 3D Zoetrope; you can change the animation speed, strobe timing, LED brightness, and LED colour in the App on iOS or Android. Direct the magic happening in front of you, and turn wonder into understanding.
