Zoetrope based on a number sequence

Amazing zoetrope based on Fibonacci sequence made using 3d-printing – just mesmerising. The strobing effect reminded me of the strobe edge on the Technics SL-1200 turntable. The zoetrope were moving images before film or television existed. This embedded the zoetrope in a wider steam punk aesthetic that harked back to the Victorian and Edwardian age. John Baird used some of the visual effects that a zoetrope has in the electro-mechanical mechanism of his original television system.
