Zoetrope

The earliest Zoetrope is said to come from China and was invented around 180 AD. It has a revolving drum that uses the persistance of motion, it has a number of sequential images placed around the inner bottom of the drum, which also has slits cut out slightly above the images, so as the drum spins gives the illusion of motion.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Zoetrope
