Giant flipbooks hiding in NH woods

STRAFFORD — Hiding in the forests throughout New Hampshire, there is a family of giant mental flip books to manually flip through.

Each one is filled with 50 drawings and rigged with a system of gears that lets you crank through the images with the turn of a handle. As the illustrations flip past, they combine to form a simple animation, according to Wired.

The London architecture firm collaborated with Beam Camp — a N.H. summer camp dedicated to teaching kids about creativity through building and making—to design the kinetic sculptures, which they call Universal Play Machines.

Director of Mobile Studios, Chee-Kit Lai, told Wired that as far as they know, these are the world's largest mechanical flipbooks ever made.
