The Phonographantasmascope

The Phonographantasmascope

The what?? Well, it's a science thing. Using the Zoetropes principle, Jim Lefevre created a bunch of special 3D discs that he set spinning using an old fashioned turntable to create the illusion of 3D movement. So it's a immensely cool 3D zoetrope-type thingy made out of a turntable. Watch for the little stick men. They are rather amazing. Awesome video!

Pythagora's Switch - Japanes TV Show

There is a children's TV program in Japan called Pythagora's Switch (or Pitagora Suicchi, in Japanese) and this is a compilation of its intro sequences, which are amongst the best things ever. All of them are made for real, with no digital trickery whatsoever. If you YouTube "Pythagoras Switch" you'll probably find loads more, many of them made by tiny Japanese children. Enjoy.
