|Kaganawa Prefectural Museum of Cultural History, Yokohama (2011)|
Well, Japanese also enjoyed the last in technology and entertainment during finals of 19 century, the zoetrope, a simple machine to provoke the illusion of movement. I just saw one similar to the originals at Kaganawa Prefectural Museum of Cultural History in Yokohama, Japan; they let you use it so I recorded how this thing works. A nice curiosity.
If you have not seen before any original image of a zoetrope...:
