Early moving images technology

You can see the phenakistoscope DEMONSTRATED (that's the word I was looking for in this morning's lecture!) on YouTube in many different videos. Here's one that gives you an idea of what the device accomplishes. Enjoy.

More info about Muybridge and how he studied horse locomotion is available at this link: . WARNING: nudity. Not for the faint of heart.

Thank you very much for pointing to our site regarding Muybridge's history.

One comment - I do not agree with the warning about nudity for faint hearted - I'm sure that you would not say the same to visitors to Michelangelo's David or give a religious warning for visitors to the Sistene Chapel?
