Video: Toy Story Zoetrope

Last Spring, my wife and I took a little road trip to California to go to Disneyland and California Adventure. It was an absolute blast! You can see some of our pictures from the trip by clicking on the "slideshows" label to the right.

While we were there, we found this awesome Toy Story "Zoetrope" in an Animation building by surprise! We were just walking around waiting for "Turtle Talk with Crush" to start and stumbled upon this awesomeness: 

It works with the same principles as stop motion (like a flipbook). It just amazed me (as you can tell in the video I'm like "what the heck?") how it just snaps into motion like that once it gets going the speed! I remember spending quite a while there in that room looking at all the details of the Zoetrope and watching it go around over and over. Fantastic!
