Make it!  Would Thomas Edison have invented a moving picture machine had he not been inspired by earlier inventions? Sometimes one invention can give you an idea for making something else. That is what happened to Thomas Edison with motion pictures. While there were many inventors working on methods of moving pictures all over the globe, the lesson here is that with curiosity and inspiration and you can do it, too.

This Mechanical Flip Book kit is a successful kickstarter project that lets you create hand-crank or motorized animations using 24 customizable flip cards. Think of it as an analog animated GIF! Packaged as an affordable DIY kit, FlipBookKit allows anyone to make either a manual or motorized flip book from a video or set of photos, creating a one-of-a-kind tactile kinetic art piece.
